FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A North Texas police officer will not face charges in the fatal shooting of a driver whose vehicle hit another officer during a drug-related investigation.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1RSIOI8 ) reports a grand jury Tuesday declined to indict anyone in the May death of Kelvin Goldston.

The shooting happened during Fort Worth police surveillance of a home amid suspected drug activity.

Authorities say Goldston tried to drive away when his truck hit an officer, causing minor injuries. Another officer shot Goldston.

The officers’ names weren’t released.

Records show Goldston had outstanding warrants for aggravated assault on a public servant, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance from a 2014 traffic stop in which he allegedly fled. He faced a probation revocation request related to an earlier drug conviction.
