(KMTV) - A grand jury has decided to indict bar owner Jake Gardner in the shooting death of James Scurlock. Gardner has been indicted on manslaughter, use of a firearm, attempted first-degree assault and terroristic threats. Surveillance footage showed Gardner fatally shooting Scurlock in the Old Market on May 30 during protests. Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine originally announced he would not file charges, saying his investigation determined that Gardner felt his life was in danger. But, after complaints from citizens, Kleine said he would back the formation of a grand jury to further investigate.
