DEARBORN HEIGHTS (WWJ/AP)- Protesters and civil rights groups are calling for justice after a Dearborn Heights homeowner fatally shot a young woman on the porch of his home.
Renisha McBride, 19, of Detroit, was killed by a shotgun blast at a home in the 16000 block of Outer Drive around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
Family members say McBride had been seeking help at the home after her cell phone died following a car accident. They say McBride, who is African-American, was shot in the back of the head as she turned to leave, and think her death is a case of racial profiling.
David Alexander Bullock, founder of Change Agent Consortium, likened the case to that of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer.
“Dearborn Heights may have its own Trayvon Martin case. A young African-American woman is dead and the shooter is claiming her death was justified,” Bullock said in a statement.“If this had occurred in Detroit we know what the outcome would have been – the same value placed on white lives should be placed on black lives. We all deserve justice.”
Police said McBride was actually shot in the front of her face, near her mouth. They requested a warrant in the case, but the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office sent the request back on Wednesday for additional investigation before making a charging decision.
The race and identity of the 54-year-old homeowner, along with the charges against him, have not been released. Police say the man told them he thought someone was trying to break into his home and accidentally discharged the gun.

You can really get yourself into trouble by speaking at all. Something to really think about...
I found that in such situations, you ask, "Am I being detained?"

If the Police officer indicates that you are not, then you state, "Then I have nothing further to discuss. Good day."

Just be sure to be polite and even-toned about it.
Or simply "Am I free to go?" Then turn around and walk away...
you should never talk to the police unless you are compelled to.

Definitely do not speak with the police. They are there to prosecute criminals, not prevent crimes, and not to help innocents. They are there to find guilt and aid prosecution only.

Even if it is just casual conversation it is best to not speak with the police. There is no off the record, there is no we will help you. Great advice.
