Longview, TX — Harrison and Gregg county grand juries have cleared law enforcement officers of any wrongdoing in a pair of shooting deaths earlier this year. The decisions appear to close the books on a trio of officer-involved shootings.
In the latest decisions, a Harrison County grand jury cleared one Harrison County and two Hallsville Police officers in the September shooting death of Richard Owen Dean, 44, of Longview.
On Oct. 26, a Gregg County grand jury cleared three Gladewater Police officers in connection with the shooting death of Willie B. Green, 56, who authorities said was wielding a knife.
On Oct. 13, two Kilgore police officers were cleared in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Jamel Freeman, who police said stabbed the two officers before being fatally shot.
All three cases were investigated by Texas Rangers before being turned over to grand juries.
