The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office just announced that a grand jury today declined to indict Portland Police Officer Jason Walters
in the March 22 fatal shooting
of Jackie Collins
. No great surprise, given that a Portland cop hasn't been indicted in recent memory for on-duty use of force.
Nevertheless, here's the news release:
Early this afternoon the Multnomah County Grand Jury declined to return any criminal charges in the death of Jack Dale Collins. The Grand Jury heard from 28 witnesses over the course of two days. The District Attorney's Office obtained a court order to record the testimony of all witnesses. A motion to publicly disclose the testimony will be docketed with the Presiding Court in Room 208 of the Multnomah County Courthouse, Wednesday April 7 at 9 am. The motion will either be decided by the court at that time or assigned by the court for a hearing at a later date.
