Surveillance Footage Released of White Michigan Man Shooting at Black Teen

Michigan Man Who Fired Shotgun At Teen Asking For Directions Says He's Video Shows Man Shooting At Black Teen Who Asked For Directions To School

Video footage released in a courtroom shows a Detroit-area man shooting at a teenager with a shotgun after the teen reportedly knocked on the door and asked for directions.

The most incriminating evidence was this home security video.

Walker previously said that he missed the bus to Rochester High School in Rochester Hills, and trekked four miles when he got lost and began knocking on the doors of several houses. Brennan Walker had gotten lost on his way to school and stopped by the Zeigler residence to ask for directions. He then runs away when he sees Ziegler answer the door holding a shotgun, who then appears to be deliberately aiming his gun at the fleeing teenager.

Zeigler's attorney, Robert Morad, told CNN after Friday's verdict that the conviction of the lesser charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm "showed that the jury believed that my client wasn't trying to kill Brennan Walker, which was obviously one of the things we argued".

Her husband, Jeffrey Zeigler, who is white, is charged with assault with intent to murder and faces up to life in prison in the attempted shooting of Brennan Walker, 14, a black teen. "I saw a black person standing at my door and I screamed at him and I asked him what he was doing there".

"I was trying to explain to that I wanted to get directions to go to my school", he said.

Zeigler said she screamed for her husband, who was in a "dead sleep" from medication he took the night before.

'He tells me that he is going to school and at that point he approaches the door, forward momentum, comes forward, opens the screen door, and puts his hand on the door handle again, as though he's coming into my house'.

"I was screaming as loud as I possibly could, saying somebody is breaking into my house." she said.

'He didn't look like a child, ' she told the court. She thought the person on her porch was trying to break in. Instead, Zeigler has said the shotgun slipped, causing him to accidentally shoot at the unarmed teen, who was not hit. "And I was, I was just shocked", he said. Zeigler also said that he tripped and the shotgun went off.

Sentencing is scheduled for November 13, Morad said, adding it was too early to say whether they are considering an appeal. "I was trying to run away faster and I heard a gunshot". After viewing it a second time, he said he was "charged up, because I was offended by what I had seen".
