CLEVELAND, OH – An Ohio family is in utter shock and disbelief after what their home surveillance cameras captured.

In the video, you can see three men wandering outside Danielle Stiegelmeyer’s home in the middle of the night. One of them stops and pets Jack, the family’s Siamese tabby. Danielle had gotten Jack from a rescue group three years ago. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to get rescued from this. Seemingly out of nowhere, the guy, who just moments ago petted Jack, turns around and shoots him. Jack scurries off to safety, clearly injured.

Danielle’s dog, Honey, found Jack in the backyard. By the time Danielle got to jack, she noticed his spine was shattered. They took Jack to a local vet hospital, but the family was forced to put him down.

As for the guy who took the cheap shot, no leads. And all Danielle’s family can do now is just remember the good times they had with Jack.
