CHARLOTTE — The North Carolina attorney general’s office is going back to a grand jury in an attempt to indict a Charlotte police officer accused of shooting an unarmed man last year.
Attorney General Roy Cooper said Wednesday that prosecutors will resubmit the case against officer Randall Kerrick on Monday.
A Mecklenburg County grand jury on Tuesday refused to indict Kerrick on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
Investigators say Kerrick shot 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell on Sept. 14. The former Florida A&M football player wrecked his car and went to a nearby house and banged on the door, apparently for help. The resident called police and three officers responded. Investigators say Kerrick was the only officer who fired at Ferrell.
