A Lubbock County Grand Jury decided not to pursue criminal charges against a Lubbock Police Officer involved in a February shooting. On February 20th, Officer Jennifer Breazeale responded to a 911 call at a Central Lubbock Apartment Complex.
When she arrived on scene, police say 25-year-old Jermar McKinzie was standing over the top of his girlfriend with a knife. That's when Officer Breazeale fired three shots at McKinzie.
Police administration says Breazeale acted within department policy. Still, as with any officer involved shooting, the case went before a grand jury.
