A 24-year-old white man has been charged with ethnic intimidation and other counts for firing shots into the home of a Black suburban Detroit family who put a Black Lives Matter sign in their front window. (Sept. 30)
BILL DWYER: The suspect did confess to the crimes.
He's a 24-year-old white male who resides in the neighborhood. And he's going to be charged with nine counts.
Eight are felonies. One is a misdemeanor. They include three counts of ethnic intimidation, which is a two-year felony and/or $5,000.
CANDACE HALL: Just knowing somebody was out there targeting you, we were-- we were afraid. You know, we were afraid to be in our house. If I was in the house during the day, I didn't want to be by myself. And me-- we wouldn't sleep there at all, because we didn't know what was going-- you know, if he was going to come back.
I've seen good come from this. All of our neighbors surrounded us with encouragement and love.
There were people that were doing things for us that-- just to make us feel better, because they knew that was just too far. This guy went too far.
