Breaking: Grand jury indicts Jake Gardner for manslaughter in death of James Scurlock (Omaha)

https://omaha.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/follow-live-grand-jury-indicts-jake-gardner-for-manslaughter-in-death-of-james-scurlock/article_a5acb094-8962-5879-8c00-abaafb069f6b.html#tracking-source=home-top-story

A grand jury charged a 38-year-old white bar owner with manslaughter and three other felonies in connection with the May 30 death of a 22-year-old Black Omahan during protests in downtown Omaha.

Grand jurors, who met for four days and deliberated this week, charged Jake Gardner, 38, with manslaughter, defined as the killing of another during a sudden quarrel. The former owner of The Hive and Gatsby bars also faces a charge of attempted first-degree assault, terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony. If convicted of all four counts, he could face up to 95 years in prison.

The indictment was a seismic shift from 107 days ago, when Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine declined to file charges against Gardner. Gardner, Kleine said, had fired in self-defense after Scurlock jumped on him.
