Prosecutors Mull Charges in Detroit Porch Shooting

The shooting has prompted calls for justice and a thorough investigation from civil rights groups that say race was a factor. McBride was an African-American, but the race of the homeowner has not been revealed by authorities involved in the case. The Rev. Charles Williams II, pastor of Historic King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit and a leader of advocacy efforts for McBride’s family, expressed confidence that Prosecutor Kym Worthy would handle the case fairly.

“She will bring justice in this situation,” Williams said Tuesday. “We do place our full faith and trust in the prosecutor.”

The northeast section of Dearborn Heights neighbors Detroit’s far west side and is a diverse area that’s home to white, black and Arab-American residents. The neighborhood where the shooting took place consists mostly of well-kept bungalows and small ranches, and is near a community college branch campus and a mosque.

Salam Salame, who lives next door to the house where McBride was killed, said she and her family were sleeping and didn’t know what had happened. She said police had been out on Tuesday canvassing the neighborhood.

Salame described her neighbor as a good man who lives alone.

“He never did anything to bother anybody,” she said.
