WHITE CITY, Ore.-- A grand jury says the officer-involved shooting at the VA on January 25th was justified.
The grand jury heard testimony from 15 witnesses on Wednesday. 

The Jackson County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday the grand jury indicted Gilbert Matthew Negrete for Attempted Assault in the first degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, two counts of Menacing, and one count of Disorderly Conduct in the second degree.

The grand jury determined the officer's actions were justified under Oregon law.

Oregon law provives that a person may use deadly physical force against another person if the person reasonably believes that person is about to use deadly physical force against them or someone else.

Specific testimony from the case cannot be made public yet according to the DA's office because the case is still pending.
