One would hope this is just a formality...

Harris Co. pawn shop owner may face charges in killing | Front page | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle But then I don't know... do you trust the Justice System?
Thomas threatened to kill the owner, who was working behind the counter. He took out a pair of handcuffs, ordering the man to his knees, deputies said.

When the owner refused to comply, Thomas fired at him, but missed. The owner was able to retrieve his own pistol and shot Thomas several times, deputies said.
Why bother a Grand Jury? If this is really what the police report says, why are they pursuing it? A formality? Or an attempt to prosecute self-defense?
