Video Of Michigan Homeowner Firing Shotgun At Teen Asking For Directions Released

Zeigler, a retired Detroit firefighter, ran at Brennan with his shotgun, firing as the boy ran away.

Zeigler said that he was defending himself in the incident, claiming that Walker was trying to break into his house.

Zeigler protested his innocence at his arraignment earlier this year, claiming there was "a lot more to this story than what is being told".

Zeigler is charged with assault with intent to murder.

'There were choices made and choices have consequences, ' Collins told the jury, according to the Detroit News. "You can tell, he doesn't have control of that gun", Morad said.

Brennan Walker, 14, was walking alone to school after missing his bus.

The Prosecutor argued in her closing statements that Jeffrey Zeigler's actions because the boy was African-American, were outrageous and criminal. She appeared distraught as that call was played in court.

Dana Zeigler testified that she panicked.

Panicked, Dana screams and says she woke up her husband Jeffrey from a deep sleep.

Marshall said he couldn't definitively say what it was leveled at.

"He didn't look like a child".

'He was a rather big man standing there, and also, if he was going to school, we have no schools in our area'. He ended up knocking on the door of a house belonging to Ziegler and his wife. As she listened to the audio, she began to get emotional.

In April, Walker described his encounter with Dana Zeigler.

He is seen wiping tears from his eyes moments later.

Jeffrey Zeigler also testified in court this week, saying that he was not trying to kill Walker that day. After Walker is off camera, Ziegler fires one shot in Walker's direction, which fortunately missed.

"I said, 'Sir, can you point out to me where he charged your door, at what point was he a threat?'" Pace told Judge Wendy Potts of the Oakland County Circuit Court, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

He was then asked what, if anything, he would have done differently.

Zeigler said he's innocent.

"He felt like he was looking out for his family", Morad added.

'You had a couple who have had several breaking and enterings and were fearful. "I was trying to explain to her that I wanted to get directions to go to my school. I don't know how you would justify it, but it certainly doesn't pass the muster".
