Followup GA: Black man No Billed by Grand Jury in Self Defense Shooting
A grand jury returned a No Bill Wednesday, clearing Arthur Bell of charges in the shooting.
It happened when several shots were fired in the parking lot of the Brothers Corner Store on Aug. 26.
Prosecutors say Richard J. Butler fired shots at Arthur Bell, and Bell fired shots back at Butler.
Bell was hit in the kidney, but survived. Butler was hit in the head and hand, and was killed instantly.
A grand jury watched the entire incident on video from surveillance, and decided that Bell would not be charged criminally.
