  • Michigan Man Who Fired Shotgun At Teen Asking For Directions Says He's

Jeffrey Ziegler - the white Rochester Hills man seen shooting a shotgun at an unarmed black teenager in a viral video this week - was found guilty by a jury on Friday.

Ziegler claimed in court that there was "a lot more to the story than what's being told", but the home security footage clearly shows Walker's knock being met with Ziegler's armed threat and eventually a shotgun blast. The boy had reportedly knocked at Zeigler's door looking for directions after missing his bus to go to school.

Jurors shown security footage of Jeffery Zeigler shooting shotgun at Brennan Walker during trial in MI.

The zeiglers told police they have a history of break-ins at their home.

The jury found him guilty of the lesser charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony.

"I saw a black person standing at my door and I screamed at him and I asked him what he was doing there", she said. "I was trying to tell them that I was trying to get to high school, but they weren't listening". "He wishes he could take it back, but obviously he can't take it back", Morad said. He knocked on the door to a home in the 2200 block of South Christian Hills Drive.


Dana Zeigler testified that she panicked.

'He tells me that he is going to school and at that point he approaches the door, forward momentum, comes forward, opens the screen door, and puts his hand on the door handle again, as though he's coming into my house'.

Marshall said he couldn't definitively say what it was leveled at. She thought the person on her porch was trying to break in.

"Number one, he didn't look like a child".

He added his intent was fire off a warning shot to scare Walker and any other potential burglars in the area.

'I wanted to fire more up in the air, more towards my shoulder, and I didn't get the chance to because like I said, it was slippery, and I didn't have a good grip on the gun, ' he said. Zeigler also said that he tripped and the shotgun went off. Just moments before that, Walker ran away from the doorstep. "I was shocked", detective Shawn Pace said in court on October 9, the Oakland Press reported. He is now jailed without bond until his November 13 sentencing. "I was trying to run away faster and I heard a gunshot", said Brennan. After viewing it a second time, he said he was "charged up, because I was offended by what I had seen".
