NERMEEN SHAIKH: Outrage is growing in the Detroit area over the killing of Renisha McBride, a 19-year-old African-American woman. In the early hours of November 2nd, McBride was shot dead on the front porch of a man’s home, where she had reportedly gone to seek help after a car crash. On Tuesday, local media aired audio of a Dearborn Heights police dispatcher who sent police to investigate the shooting after the homeowner called 911 to say he had shot an African-American woman he did not know on his porch.

911 DISPATCHER: [Just received a 911 call] from a male saying he just shot someone on his porch. Then he hung up. We’re trying to call back. [inaudible] Units responding. We have the male on the line, states he doesn’t know this person. Trying to get further.

RESPONDING OFFICER: There’s somebody down on the porch. It appears it’s going to be a black female.

911 DISPATCHER: Copy. Black female.

AMY GOODMAN: The homeowner, whom police have not publicly identified, told police he believed Renisha McBride was trying to break into his home, but he claimed his gun accidentally fired at her. The homeowner, who is white, has not been arrested. An autopsy revealed McBride was shot in the face by a shotgun, but not at close range. McBride’s family says McBride suffered a concussion in the car accident, was seeking help at the time of the shooting. The car accident occurred just before 1:00 a.m. The homeowner reported the shooting at 4:45 a.m. Gerald Thurswell, an attorney for McBride’s family, told the Detroit Free Press he doesn’t believe the homeowner killed McBride by accident.

GERALD THURSWELL: It’s very, very, very hard to believe that it was an accident when the gun is in her face and it goes off accidentally. Somebody had to have their finger on the trigger. He was in a safe place. He was in his house. And he didn’t have to open the door. He could have called 911 to protect himself. And if she was seeking help, he could have called 911 to get her help. So, I don’t think this is justifiable, and I don’t think this is accidental.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: Many observers have compared Renisha McBride’s death to the shooting of Trayvon Martin. On Friday, supporters of McBride rallied in Detroit.

PROTESTERS: Renisha McBride. Renisha McBride. Renisha McBride. Renisha McBride.

This is absolutely wrong.  This man needs to be charged with murder right now.  He killed a defenseless person and that is wrong.
