Grand jury begins for off-duty cop who shot biker
By Scott Gutierrez
SEATTLE — A South Dakota grand jury has begun hearing testimony in the case of an off-duty Seattle police officer who shot and wounded a Hells Angels biker over the weekend during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, authorities said Monday. Sturgis police investigators forwarded most of their case to the Meade County State's Attorney's Office, Police Chief Jim Bush said. A grand jury convened Sunday to hear testimony from witnesses, including off-duty officers from Seattle, he said.
"There are probably several hours of testimony that have to be presented yet," he said.
