Three white people allegedly threatened to kill a black family — including two children — during a violent home invasion in Michigan, prosecutors said.
The suspects — identified as Branden Odegaard, Michael Graves and Maci Pietryga – were arrested after cops responded to a 911 call on April 26 in Walled Lake, where witnesses said the trio “threatened to kill the occupants” and used a racial slur, the Detroit News reported.
A mother and her two children, ages 9 and 13, were at home during the incident, WDIV reported.
The 13-year-old was awoken by a commotion outside and roused his 9-year-old brother. Their mother then grabbed a gun and fired shots through a bedroom window before calling her husband, who was working at the time in Detroit, the station reported.
