No charges yet against homeowner who allegedly fatally shot Renisha McBride after she asked for help

DEARBORN, Mich. - The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office is asking for the Dearborn police to further investigate before they decide whether any charges will be filed in the shooting death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride.

McBride's body was found by officers early Saturday morning in the 16000 block of Outer Drive on a porch.

A 911 call was made but investigators will not say who made the call or whether it was before of after the shooting.

A Facebook page was created titled "Justice For Renisha McBride."

Those behind the page are alleging McBride had gotten in a car accident that morning and was knocking on a resident's door for help, when she was shot by someone  from the home.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office released this statement today:

"We have asked that further investigation be conducted by the police in this case.  We will not be able to make a charging decision until the requested work has been completed.   Ms. McBride's parents have been informed of our position."
