GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

New information has been released about the night authorities say a 17-year-old girl was shot and killed while deputies said she participated in an Anderson County home invasion.

The 911 tapes have been released and reveal more about what happened the night of July 8. 

Deputies said the girl was shot by the man she and two other suspects were robbing at the time. They said the group had forced their way into the Burris Street home and held the family inside at gunpoint.

The 911 tapes reveal that the family included a 10-month-old infant.

Deputies are still searching for 23-year-old Quentin "Que" Dean, of Anderson, and a second man not yet identified. Investigators said the men ran, leaving their teenage accomplice Emani Puckett to die from a gunshot wound.

According to authorities, the three kicked down the door of the home, pistol whipped the man inside and took his phone, money and wallet. His girlfriend ran for help and a neighbor called 911.

Deputies said the male resident tackled Puckett who was allegedly holding the gun. He said she was shot twice during a struggle.

The sheriff's office said the case is still under investigation, and no charges have been placed against that resident at this time.

"If someone comes in on your residence whether you own or rent the home, whatever the case may be, you have the right to defend yourself and property inside of your residence, " said Chad McBride, spokesman for the sheriff's office.

According to the 911 tapes, the teen was shot inside of the home and collapsed outside on the driveway. Puckett was still breathing when neighbors called 911.

Puckett's mother described her as shy and smart student, someone who would not have been involved in a violent crime.

The sheriff's office wants anyone with information about this case to come forward and call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
