  • DETROIT (AP) — A suburban Detroit man who killed an unarmed woman on his porch immediately suggested to police it was an accident and that he didn’t know his shotgun was loaded, according to recorded remarks played in court Thursday.

    Theodore Wafer, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, met officers outside his Dearborn Heights home after they responded to his 911 call around 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 2.

    “What happened here?” Sgt. Rory McManmon asked, according to the recording played by prosecutors.

    “A consistent knocking on the door, and I’m trying to look through the windows and the door,” Wafer said. “It’s banging somewhere else so I open up the door, kind of like who is this? And the gun discharged.

    “I didn’t know there was a round in there,” Wafer told McManmon. “I don’t get it. Who’s knocking on your door at 4:30 in the morning? Bang, bang, bang — somebody wanting in.”
