MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Hennepin County grand jury will review the shooting death of a man who struggled with Minneapolis police in May.

Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau says she was told by the Hennepin County Attorney’s office late Wednesday that the case will go before a grand jury next month.

Officials say 22-year-old Terrance Franklin was killed May 10 after he tried to grab an officer’s gun. Franklin’s family has disputed the police account.

Police say Franklin fled a traffic stop and broke into a house in south Minneapolis, where he struggled with officers and a police dog. Franklin was killed, and two officers were hit with gunfire. Both officers survived.

The police chief says she won’t comment until after the grand jury reaches a decision.
