Man Who Shot at Black Teen Asking for Directions Found Guilty of Assault
Jeffrey Ziegler, who shot at a teenager in need of directions, was found guilty of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony on Friday. In April, Ziegler shot at 14-year-old Brennan Walker, who knocked on the door of his Michigan home looking for directions. Ziegler and his wife claimed they thought the teen was trying to break in. A video of the incident was released Thursday after jurors watched it as part of the trial. Ziegler expressed regret over the altercation, claiming he “would have given the teen a ride” if he could change his actions. His bond was revoked, and his sentencing was scheduled for November 18.
