A Travis County grand jury has decided not to indict Austin Police Department officer Nathan Wagner for the May 30 shooting death of Byron Carter, Jr. You can view several photos released from the grand jury investigation above.
Officer Wagner and Officer Jeffrey Rodriguez were searching an area along East Eighth street as part of an initiative targeting auto theft. They encountered 20-year-old Carter and a teenager. (Due to the teen’s age, the individual has not been identified.)
The officers say the two were acting suspiciously and they started following them. Carter and the other person then got into a car and police say the teen driver accelerated toward the two officers.
