Grand Jury Will Probe Helicopter Shooting of Immigrants in Texas

"The investigation into the shooting of two immigrants in Texas killed by a police helicopter intensified Wednesday after a South Texas prosecutor said would impanel a grand jury to probe the matter.  Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra said after meeting with investigators that the case "will be taken to a grand jury, there's no doubt about that."  The grand jury will determine whether charges should be filed after two Guatemalans hiding under a cover in a truck bed were shot by a state trooper in a helicopter trying to disable the fleeing vehicle." – Associated Press, Oct. 31, 2012.
