Shaw Grand Jury

A Covington County grand jury did "not" indict the sheriff's deputy responsible in the fatal shooting of Aaron Shaw last October.

At the time of the shooting outside Florala, Shaw was reportedly in police custody.

Because Shaw is black, the local chapter of the NAACP raised questions about the death of the 48-year-old man.

Thursday, many people in Florala are "upset" that no one will be prosecuted in his death.

Councilman Grady Hobbs says he saw Shaw handcuffed in the squad car 20 minutes before he was fatally shot.

In a written statement, Covington County District Attorney Greg Gambril says his office turned over the results of an independent Alabama Bureau of Investigations report to the grand jury.

That panel voted "not" to prosecute anyone in the Shaw case.
