A Texas grand jury has decided against criminally charging a cop who killed Damian Daniels, a Black military veteran in mental distress, despite the availability of other, non-lethal methods that could have de-escalated what became a fatal encounter.

Damian Daniels was a military veteran who was shot twice in the chest in front of his newly purchased home in Bexar County, Texas, after cops were dispatched there to perform a wellness check.
