(AP) — Protesters and civil rights groups are calling for justice after a suburban Detroit homeowner fatally shot a 19-year-old woman on his porch. No charges have been filed after authorities said Renisha McBride, of Detroit, was killed by a shotgun blast to the face early last Saturday in Dearborn Heights. A man told investigators that he thought someone was trying to break into his home and accidentally discharged the gun, according to police. McBride’s family said she likely approached the home to seek help after getting into a car accident nearby.

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) by David BauderAP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) — CBS’ “60 Minutes” apologized on Sunday’s broadcast for a flawed story on the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, and for the discredited source who claimed to have been at the scene. During brief remarks at the end of the hour correspondent Lara Logan said “60 Minutes” was misled and made a mistake in its reporting. Logan is the correspondent responsible for the Oct. 27 story. She had interviewed former security contractor Dylan Davies, who claimed he took part in fighting at the mission.

(AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) PITTSBURGH (AP) – Ben Roethlisberger isn’t going anywhere. Not if he has anything to say about it. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback called a report he may seek a trade in the offseason “ridiculous.” NFL.com reported early Sunday the Steelers expected Roethlisberger to ask the team to explore trade options in the offseason. Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, called the speculation “completely wrong” and added the 31-year-old quarterback is “100 percent committed to winning a championship with the Steelers.”
