No charges have been filed after authorities said McBride, of Detroit, was killed by a shotgun blast to the face early Saturday in Dearborn Heights. According to police, the homeowner told investigators that he thought someone was trying to break into his home and accidentally discharged the gun. (AP Photo/Detroit Free Press, Kimberly P. Mitchell)
