(Scroll down for video) A family of Ohio, is seeking answers as to why a young girl was shot by home invaders.

People in the community in Mount Auburn, took to the streets to protest the killing of 9-year-old Alexandrea “Sissy” Thompson.

Police are asking for anyone with information to come forward so that they can arrest the killers.

The girl’s father, Alex Thompson, told police that four men came into the home, which he shares with his girlfriend and nine children.

The gunmen asked for their father before they made their way upstairs, where they confronted Alex at gunpoint.

Alexandrea, who was also in the room, took cover behind her father.

As Alex tried to grab the gun from the suspects, it went off. Alex was shot four time. Family members believe that one bullet went through him and stuck Alexandrea, killing her.

Alex suffered gunshot wounds to the hand, arm and abdomen. He was taken to the hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Alex said that he does not know the intruders and he cannot understand why his family was targeted.

Police are investigating the incident, but so far, no arrests have been made.
