"I knocked on her door a few times and she came down yelling at me before I could say anything and she thought I was trying to break into her house", Walker told WXYZ.

Zeigler allegedly chased after Walker and fired a shot because he and his wife believed the 14-year-old was attempting to break into their home, according to a press release.

Prosecutors said Friday that the home security video supported Walker's version of events.

Jeffrey Zeigler, 53, has been identified as the man deputies say pulled a shotgun on a 14-year-old teen. "I was in bed yesterday morning when my wife started screaming and crying".

The judge stopped him, however, as his lawyer was not in court for the hearing.

The teenager, Brennan Walker, 14, claims he missed his bus to Rochester High School, Michigan, and went up to the home to ask for directions on Thursday.

According to Fox 2 Detroit, Walker's mother had taken his phone away, so he chose to knock on a local resident's door to ask for directions. As he trekked the 4 miles to Rochester High School in Rochester Hills, he got lost and knocked on the doors of several houses, he said.

Then a man came downstairs armed with a gun.

"There's a lot more to this story than what is being told and I believe that will all come out in court", Zeigler said while appearing in court via video. "And that's when I heard the gunshot".

"Over the last 24 hours I've been working with the leadership of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office and Rochester Community Schools and have been kept apprised of the bad incident which occurred yesterday in one of our neighborhoods".

"I'm kind of happy that I didn't become a statistic". "I don't know what other these people she could possible have been talking about". "He was by himself". "I shouldn't be fearful of a child, let alone a skin tone", she adds. She said that the woman in the video could be heard saying, "Why did these people choose my house?" We are going to ask for every charge permissible for this guy, who stepped up and fired a shotgun because someone knocked on his door. She then issued a $50,000 cash bond with conditions.

He was ordered to have no contact with the teen's family, to wear a Global Positioning System tether and to surrender any weapons to the sheriff's office.

He is also banned from returning to his house.

"I'd really like to stay in my home and keep my family together", Zeigler told the judge.

Nicholson set an April 24 probable cause conference and May 1 preliminary exam.

The alleged shooter, identified as former Detroit Fire Department Lt. Jeff Zeigler, was arraigned Friday on felony charges of being in possession of a firearm and assault with intent to murder, according to WXYZ.

It's not completely known why 19-year-old Renisha McBride knocked on Ted Wafer's door that night, though she had crashed her vehicle a few blocks away.
