A Harris County grand jury has decided not to indict a police officer for fatally shooting an unarmed black man outside of a Houston shopping center in January.
According to ABC News, Officer Juventino Castro shot and killed Jordan Baker, 26, while Castro was working his second job. ABC 13 adds that Castro told authorities that Baker matched the description of a robbery suspect, so he approached him. Castro insists that Baker charged at him, so he opened fire.
ABC 13 pointed out that it's rare for Harris County police to be indicted:
Police officers in Harris County are rarely indicted. In fact, according to Houston police watchdog group, Civiliansdown.com, since 2005, 95 people have been killed by Houston police officers and 130 have been shot and wounded. None of those officers involved were ever indicted.
