Brennan Walker didn’t make the morning bus to school. He didn’t have his phone. And he wasn’t sure how to get to his high school. Brennan needed help finding his way, and the home of Jeffrey Zeigler appeared to be just as good as any to seek neighborly guidance. Zeigler answered with a shotgun blast.
"A Teen Missed the School Bus. When He Knocked on a Door for Directions, a Man Shot at Him." is from the October 12, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Alex Horton and Eli Rosenberg and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
