The Queens grand jury in the police shooting of the unarmed Sean Bell is set to indict three of the five cops involved, reports NY1. The station cites attorneys for the three officers.
Sean Bell was killed on November 25, 2006, in the early morning hours of what would have been his wedding day. He was leaving a strip club in Jamaica, Queens, where he'd been celebrating his bachelor party. Plainclothes officers fired 50 bullets into the car he was driving, killing Bell and wounding two of his friends.
The indictments will remain sealed until Monday. For now, says NY1,
Detectives Marc Cooper, Michael Oliver and Gescard Isnora will be indicted on charges that could range from assault to second-degree murder.
