CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTXL) – A second grand jury has indicted the North Carolina police officer who shot and killed former FAMU football player Jonathan Ferrell in September of last year.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Randall Kerrick will face voluntary manslaughter charges for his role in the shooting death of of Jonathan Ferrell.  This comes after a previous grand jury last week refused to indict Ferrell, recommending instead that the Attorney General press lesser included charges.

North Carolina’s Attorney General Roy Cooper resubmitted the case to the second grand jury on Monday, citing that the previous body did not include a full panel of jurors.

Officer Randall Kerrick shot Jonathan Ferrell in Charlotte on the night of September 14, 2013.  Ferrell had crashed his car and was seeking help, when an area homeowner called the police.  Officer Kerrick responded to the scene, when Ferrell began to run towards Kerrick’s police cruiser, reportedly to ask for help.  Kerrick opened fire with 12 shots, 10 of which hit Ferrell, killing him.  Kerrick maintains that he fired in self-defense.

Jonathan Ferrell’s family currently has a lawsuit pending against the Charlotte Police Chief, Officer Kerrick, the city of Charlotte, and Mecklenburg County — accusing them of gross negligence in Ferrell’s death.
