Area teen shot at while asking for directions

Brennan Walker recounted how he was shot at Thursday morning

Brennan Walker, 14, told WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) that he missed the bus and attempted to walk about 4 miles from his home to Rochester High School.

He knocked on the door of a home on South Christian Hills Drive and a woman answered.

Oakland County sheriff's deputies were called to Zeigler's Rochester Hills' home about 8:20 a.m. Thursday after a woman told 911 that her husband had chased a black male who tried to break in. "When I heard her say that, it was like, but it is (what it looks like)".

Walker told Fox 2 that a man then came to the door, grabbed a gun and opened fire as Walker ran away.

"There is a lot more to the story ad I think that will all come out in court", Zeigler said.

Thankfully, the man missed. "I'm 14; but I don't look 14", Brennan said. He later added that he was happy he didn't "become a statistic".

FOX 2: "Your son nearly became a hashtag".

"I feel like, wow".

He said he had missed the bus and didn't have his mobile phone so was struggling to find his way. She called her husband, who had a shotgun, to the door. She dropped everything and immediately went to the substation to be with her son.

Investigators told her the family's Ring doorbell recorded the encounter. His story was not borne out by the video, she said.


'She started yelling at me and she was like: "Why are you trying to break into my house?"' Walker told WJBK. "Who are, "these people?". And that set me off. He said his mother told him black boys get shot because they don't look their age, huh? "I told her, 'No, I go to Rochester High, I'm just looking for directions to Rochester High'".

The video was taken from Zeigler's home security system. We are going to ask for every charge permissible for this guy, who stepped up and fired a shotgun because someone knocked on his door. "This is a decent neighborhood". "I don't know what other 'these people" she could possibly have been talking about.

The man is being held at Oakland County Jail and is awaiting possible criminal charges. He added: "I feel bad for the young man; I feel awful for the mom and the anxiety that they had to go through".

The judge additionally ordered the Rochester man to not have direct contact with the victim or his family, and to surrender all of his weapons to the Oakland County Sheriff's Department.

The retired Detroit firefighter was arraigned Friday afternoon.

Zeigler was charged with assault with intent to murder, possession of a firearm while committing a felony. A probable cause hearing is April 24.

A Dearborn Heights man is serving at least 17 years in prison after being convicted of murder in the 2013 fatal shooting of a black woman who pounded on his door after crashing her vehicle.

It's not completely known why 19-year-old Renisha McBride knocked on Ted Wafer's door that night, though she had crashed her auto a few blocks away.
