      State prosecutors begin review in porch shooting

      Michigan prosecutors say they've launched a review to decide whether to charge a suburban Detroit homeowner in the shooting death of a 19-year-old woman on his porch.


      Wayne County prosecutor's office spokeswoman Maria Miller said Monday a warrant review process is underway as they await information from Dearborn Heights police. No arrests have been made related to the Nov. 2 death of Renisha McBride, who was shot in the face.


      The case prompted calls for justice from civil rights groups. The 54-year-old homeowner hasn't been named but told investigators he thought someone was trying to break into his home and he accidentally discharged his shotgun.


      Family members of McBride, an African-American, say she likely was seeking help after a car accident.
