ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard says he’s planning to resubmit a fatal officer-involved shooting case to a grand jury.

Local media reported that Howard met with the family of 19-year-old Ariston Waiters on Wednesday. Union City police have said Waiters was shot in 2011 after he went for an officer’s gun and a grand jury declined to indict the officer.

Howard and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reopened the probe into Waiters’ death after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV raised questions about the thoroughness of the investigation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://bit.ly/1BqSGhg ) Howard hasn’t given a specific timeline for when the case may be presented to a new grand jury.

Mawuli Davis, the attorney representing Waiters’ mother, says the family expects charges to be brought against the officer.
