EUHARLEE, Georgia — A grand jury has determined that a police officer who shot and killed a teenager should not face criminal charges.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a grand jury returned the "no bill" determination to charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct against Euharlee police Cpl. Nancy Beth Gatny (http://on-ajc.com/1stg8tw).
Bartow County District Attorney Rosemary Greene says the grand jury's decision ends her office's involvement.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Sherry Lang has said two Euharlee police officers were serving two probation violation warrants Feb. 14 when a 17-year-old boy opened the door with a gun pointed at them.
An attorney for relatives of the teenager, Christopher Roupe, says the family disputes that account. They say he was holding a Nintendo Wii video game controller.
