FL Cop-Involved Shooting To Grand Jury


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ Prosecutors say they’re sending to the grand jury the case of a former police officer who fatally shot a legally armed man who was awaiting a tow truck.

Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg announced during a news conference Wednesday that his office would continue its investigation of former Palm Beach Gardens officer Nouman Raja in the shooting death of musician Corey Jones.



Jones had left a gig before dawn Oct. 18 when his SUV broke down.

He was standing nearby when Raja stopped in an unmarked car. Raja was on-duty but not in uniform.

Jones had a concealed weapons permit.

He and Raja pulled their guns, and Raja shot Jones.

The department fired Raja after the shooting.

Jones was black while Raja is of South Asian ancestry.
