Statement from Mayor Ginther Regarding Grand Jury Investigation

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther released the following statement regarding the grand jury investigation of the police-involved shooting of Henry Green:

“The community has waited many months to learn the result of the grand jury investigation into the police-involved shooting of Henry Green. The integrity of the investigation and presentation to the grand jury required the withholding of information critical to the investigation and potential prosecution.

“Now, it is important we share as much information as we are able. The proceedings of the grand jury should be unsealed, and the results of the police investigation should be made public as soon as the law allows. 

“I am committed to working with all residents and the police to close the divide, focus on what unites us and work toward building trust and giving hope and opportunity.”
