Black teen gets shot at after stopping to ask for directions

A black teen in Michigan stopped to ask for directions after missing his school bus — and a local resident responded by shooting at him with a shotgun, he said.
Brennan Walker told Click on Detroit that he overslept on Thursday, and that his phone had been taken away by his mother. He said he was merely trying to get to Rochester High School in Rochester Hills.
"I knocked on the door, stepped back, knocked, stepped back and then a lady came downstairs yelling at me," Brennan told the station. "She asked me, 'Why are you trying to break into my house?' and I told her, no, I was just looking for directions to Rochester High."
Brennan said a man came downstairs with a shotgun and he started running: "I turned back and saw him aiming at me," he told Click on Detroit.

The man fired at least one shot. The shot was delayed because he forgot to take the safety off, according to reports.
Brennan, who is 14, said that he kept running and later hid, according to Fox 2. He would later cry.
"That's just completely unacceptable on every level," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told the station. "I don't know how you would justify it, but it certainly doesn't pass the muster."

The suspect is in custody. Security video has not been released, but authorities, Brennan and his mother watched it.
"One of the things that stands out, that probably angers me the most is, while I was watching the tape, you can hear the wife say, 'Why did 'these people' choose my house?'" mother Lisa Wright tells Fox 2. "Who are, 'these people?' And that set me off. I didn't want to believe it was what it appeared to look like. When I heard her say that, it was like, but it is (what it looks like)."
"My mom says that, black boys get shot because sometimes they don't look their age, and I don't look my age," Brennan tells Fox 2. "I'm 14, but I don't look 14. I'm kind of happy that, like, I didn't become a statistic."
