Police found Ayvani Perez about 36 hours after she was abducted in a violent home invasion Tuesday.
Police say these two men broke into the Perez family home in Ellenwood, Georgia around 2:15 Tuesday morning.
They shot and killed the family dog to stop it from barking. Police say when Ayvanis mother couldn't produce any jewelry or money for the intruders they took off with the girl instead.
Both suspects are in custody.
Federal, state, and local officers searched the area. They say the fact that the girl was found alive is a credit to community policing, but they would not elaborate since the investigation is on-going.
