Austin Officer not indicted for shotting Byron Carter

A grand jury has decided not to indict an Austin police officer accused of using excessive force in the shooting death of a 20-year-old.

On Friday the 403rd Judicial District Court of Travis County said it inquired carefully into the case and has failed to find a bill of indictment against officer Nathan Wagner.

Wagner has been under investigation since last May when he shot and killed 20-year-old Byron Carter, Jr. Wagner and his partner say Carter and a 16-year-old were acting suspiciously. When the officers approached them, the 16-year-old tried to run over the officers with his car.

Officer Wagner opened fire, hitting Carter four times. Carter's family claims Wagner used excessive force.

to prevent this community of Austin from blowing up, there needs to be a public dis-closer of the info in the case.
