What we know:
- Brennan Walker, 14, said he was walking alone to school Thursday after he missed the bus. 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.
The teen said he went up to one home and knocked on the door a few times.
A woman came to the door, yelling at him, he told WDIV.
“I was trying to explain to that I wanted to get directions to go to my school,” he said. The man eventually came out with a shotgun and fired one shot at the teen who was running away.
- The teen was not wounded.
- Deputies responded to a call of a male trying to break into a house, the sheriff’s department said in a news release. Both the boy and Zeigler were taken to a police station and questioned. Zeigler was arrested
Zeigler was released Friday from Oakland County Jail on a $50,000 bond. A judge also ordered the man to stay more than 10 miles from the teenager, which means he will likely have to live elsewhere until trial. He was also ordered to turn over all his firearms and wear a GPS monitor.
