: A 19 year old Detroit girl named Renisha McBride, was shot in the head and bled to death in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. The Detroit News claims that her car broke down, and she was looking for assistance, when a homeowner GUNNED HER DOWN.
Dearborn is a suburb outside of Detroit which wikipedia describes as follows: "The ethnic backgrounds of Dearborn residents are primarily European or Middle-Eastern"
Here's what we know. At approximately 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning, Renisha had car trouble and she knocked on the door of a home, hoping for assistance. Someone inside the home came out and SHOT HER IN THE HEAD.
Here's how the Detroit News is reporting it:
“He shot her in the head … for what? For knocking on his door,” said McBride’s maternal aunt, Bernita Spinks. “If he felt scared or threatened, he should have called 911.”
“You see a young black lady on your porch and you shoot?” asked Spinks. “He killed my niece and he needs to pay for it. He needs to be in jail.
“There was no windows broken. My niece didn’t bother anyone,” said Spinks. “She went looking for help and now she’s dead.”
The Dearborn Police Department has confirmed the shooting, but have not released the name of the suspect. What's worse is that the police initially told Renisha’s family that her "body was dumped.” Police now admit that she was KILLED on the man's porch.
