(CNN) — Police are investigating whether a 19-year-old Detroit woman who was shot and killed on the front porch of a home was simply looking for help after a car crash.

Relatives and friends held a vigil Wednesday for Renisha McBride, saying that’s what led to her death early Saturday.

“My niece didn’t deserve to die like this. This is senseless,” a woman identified as McBride’s aunt told CNN affiliate WDIV. “… I just want justice for my niece, and peace.”

Police, in a statement, said a woman was shot while on the porch. “The Dearborn Heights Police have identified the person who fired the shot and killed the woman,” the statement said.
