There has been no word if any charges have been filed.
Said Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler: "In addition to the grand jury’s finding at the conclusion of the case, it has been the practice here in Orange County, the district attorney’s office conducts a parallel investigation and we release the facts and circumstances of the shooting and the evidence that was recovered in that. We have done that consistently since 2015.”
