Prosecutors Seek More Information After Porch Killing

Posted: Updated:

DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - Prosecutors are seeking more information from police before deciding whether to charge a man who fatally shot a woman on the porch of a suburban Detroit home.

The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report 19-year-old Renisha McBride of Detroit was killed by a shotgun blast in Dearborn Heights early Saturday. Her family says she likely approached the home to seek help after getting into a car accident.

Police say they've identified the person who shot her and requested a warrant in the case. The Wayne County prosecutor's office says it sent the request back to police Wednesday for additional investigation before making a charging decision.

McBride's aunt Bernita Spinks is acting as family spokeswoman. She says the family wants justice. A vigil was held Wednesday at the home.
