COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Fairfield County grand jury has declined to return any charges against a Lancaster police officer involved in the fatal shooting of a woman during a domestic disturbance at her home Nov. 19.

That clears Officer Shawn M. Bakr, 33, from any wrongdoing in the shooting death of Misty Dawn Shook. The grand jury made the decision Friday.
