Wafer, 54, was arraigned on charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter Friday for allegedly shooting 19-year-old Renisha McBride on his porch with a shotgun Nov. 2. After she was in a car accident earlier that evening, McBride may have been seeking help when she knocked on Wafer’s door. Exactly what she was doing in the time between the accident and the shooting remains unclear.

In the audio obtained by the Detroit Free Press, he says, “I just shot somebody on my front porch with a shotgun, banging on my door.” He gives the 911 operator his street address but hangs up before stating the city.

At an arraignment hearing in Dearborn Heights’ 20th District Court Friday afternoon, Judge Mark Plawecki set Wafer’s bail at $250,000 with a 10 percent surety, noting the seriousness of the case.

Mack Carpenter, one of Wafer’s lawyers, told the judge his client was not a flight risk.
