At 4:30 a.m., McBride walked up to a house at 16812 W. Outer Drive in Dearborn Heights – about six blocks from the crash – and knocked on the door. The homeowner, Theodore Wafer, told police he thought McBride was an intruder and accidentally pulled the trigger.

Wafer dialed 911.

“Um, yes, I just shot somebody on my front porch with a shotgun banging on my door,” Wafer told 911 dispatchers.

When police arrived, McBride was on her back on the porch, bleeding from the head.
