AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors say a grand jury will consider whether to bring charges against a man who drove into a crowd demonstrating in Austin against police violence last July and shot and killed an armed protester.

Travis County District Attorney José Garza announced the move in a statement Friday without identifying the man who shot 28-year-old Garrett Foster.

The man’s attorneys have identified him as Army Sgt. Daniel Perry.

They say the Fort Hood soldier was working for a ride-share company and acted in self-defense after Foster pointed a gun at him.
