In Nebraska, a grand jury has indicted a white bar owner in Omaha in the fatal shooting of James Scurlock, a Black protester. Scurlock was shot dead on May 30 during protests over the killing of George Floyd. He was 22 years old. The local county attorney initially declined to bring charges but brought the case to a grand jury. The bar owner, Jake Gardner, had claimed self-defense, but a special prosecutor said evidence from Gardner himself undermines that claim.
