Charlotte officer indictedA grand jury indicted a Charlotte police officer for voluntary manslaughter Monday in the fatal shooting of an unarmed former Florida A&M football player.

Investigators say Randall Kerrick shot 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell on Sept. 14 as Ferrell looked for help after a car crash.

Attorneys for Ferrell's family praised the decision. "There is a tremendous sense of relief for the family. We are very thankful that the grand jury carefully considered the evidence and returned the indictment," said Charles Monnett III.

In a statement, the family said it would continue to monitor the case.

"We will persevere in our quest for justice for not just Jonathan, but all law abiding citizens. After all, what happened to him that night could happen to any of us," the statement said.

Representatives of the Charlotte chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other civil rights groups have questioned whether race played a role in the shooting. Kerrick is white; Ferrell was black.
