The Gallia County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
It happened at 5:00 Monday morning at a home on Wayne Lane.
The reporting deputy says the girl awoke and found the man.
Her stepfather ran out of the house, trying to stop the intruder.
He says he saw two shadows near his driveway so he fired shots to scare off the intruders.
The male was described as wearing a black hoodie and gloves.
The reporting deputy says gas may have been taken from a car at the scene.
