Dearborn Heights police say a homeowner told investigators his shotgun accidentally discharged, hitting Renisha McBride in the face as she stood on his porch.Well, I'm sure that's nice and convenient for everyone. The police also want charges pressed but the local DA is requesting additional information from the investigation before they proceed.
“This man’s claiming – believed the girl was breaking into the home. And he’s also saying the gun discharged accidentally,” Lt. James Serwatowski, chief detective, said today.
The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office reiterated today that it is awaiting further investigation by Dearborn Heights police before deciding whether any criminal charges will be authorized in the case.The police also released some additional details regarding the timeline of the incident - Renisha was in an accident at about 1:30AM but was not shot until sometime after 3:30AM. Also, she was shot in the face with a shotgun - the homeowners apparently, which has been seized - and not in the back of the head.
“This girl was not shot in the back of the head while leaving the porch,” Serwatowski said “I don’t know where the family is getting this. She was shot in the front of the face, near the mouth.”Hopefully we'll learn more in the next few days about this tragedy that will shed some light on what really happened and justice can be brought to those that deserve it.
