A deadly accident or brutal murder?

A Michigan man is under arrest tonight and facing second-degree murder charges after shooting a 19-year-old woman in the face. He is white, she was black.

Renisha McBride was shot in the early morning hours of November 2nd on the front porch of Theodore Wafer's house. Wafer says he thought she was trying to break in and his gun accidentally discharged, but McBride's family says she was simply looking for help after crashing her car that night.
