Video Released of White Man Shooting at 14-Year-Old Black Teen Who Asked for Directions

Video of 53-year-old Jeffrey Ziegler attempting to shoot 14-year-old Brennan Walker, a black teen who approached the man’s front door to ask for directions last April, was released Thursday in the midst of Ziegler’s trial for attempted murder. The video footage shows Walker approaching the front door and standing outside before suddenly sprinting away. Ziegler emerges seconds later, attempts to fire, then steadies himself and fires a shot before returning inside his home. Ziegler has repeatedly insisted that he slipped and accidentally fired on Walker. As The Daily Beast previously reported, Ziegler also claims that his wife believed Walker was trying to break in—despite Walker doing nothing more than patiently standing at the door.

“I got to the house, and I knocked on the lady’s door. Then she started yelling at me and she was like, ‘Why are you trying to break into my house?’ I was trying to explain to her that I was trying to get directions to Rochester High,” Walker told Fox2 at the time. “And she kept yelling at me. Then the guy came downstairs, and he grabbed the gun, I saw it and started to run. And that’s when I heard the gunshot.” The Oakland Press notes that the video could cast “serious doubt” in the minds of jurors, who viewed the video Wednesday. That’s what happened to Detective Shawn Pace, who testified that “When I saw that video, my thought process switched...I knew which direction I had to go. I was shocked.” After viewing it a second time, he said, he was “charged up, because I was offended by what I had seen.” The trial is expected to conclude Friday.

2. Sure hope he goes to prison.

Looks like one of the “good ole boys.” Shoot first and ask questions later.

4. Hopefully he will face charges.

I have to admit I am confused how a 14 year old does not know his way to school.

7. super easy, school bus routes can be long 45mins to an hour even

you get back into the housing developments, and the roads go twisty turny, stupid dead ends, and the street numbers don't always make sense, as usually they can be assigned randomly, as happens with rapid growth. I'm sure the kid just needed to know if it was east west north or south, or maybe just directions to the main road.

I've lived in an area of Washington that has had the most growth in the state past 15 years or so, and even though i've been here for many many years, I still get lost.

8. Right, there could be NO reason for a black kid to approach a home other than to rob it.

Fucking racist crazy white people, be ashamed.
