Outside Attorney Joins US Police Shooting Probe
CHICAGO, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 30th july,2016) : An independent lawyer has been called in to help decide whether to file charges over the fatal police shooting of a black motorist from Minnesota, whose dying moments were broadcast live online.
The July 6 death of Philando Castile, which shocked the nation, was one of two fatal police shootings early this month that kicked off a renewed wave of protests against police brutality towards African Americans.
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi is tasked with deciding whether to file charges against the officer involved in the shooting, Jeronimo Yanez.
Choi told a press conference Friday that he has retained Don Lewis, an outside attorney from the St.
Paul, Minnesota area, to aid in the decision making. "Don will be an integral member of our team who will review this case with me," Choi said, and decide whether to charge Yanez, or whether to refer the case to a grand jury for it to decide on an indictment.
