7/18/2019 - Grand jury votes not to indict SAPD officer for Oct. 2018 shooting

On Wednesday, a Bexar County grand jury voted not to indict San Antonio Police Officer Steve Casanova for the death of Charles Roundtree, Jr., a bystander who was killed during an officer-involved shooting on October 17, 2018.

Davante Snowden was indicted by an earlier grand jury for Felon in Possession of a Handgun as a result of this incident. The case against Davante Snowden is pending trial in the 399th Criminal District Court of Bexar County.

“Our office presented all the evidence regarding this officer-involved shooting to the grand jury. Although the decision of the grand jury may not be the decision that was hoped for by the family of Charles Roundtree, Jr., we respect the grand jury’s decision and extend our sympathy to the Roundtree family,” said Bexar County District Attorney Joe D. Gonzales.

Longstanding Texas law and the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure prohibit the disclosure of anything that is presented to a grand jury.

Further, in order to protect the integrity of the pending prosecution of Davante Snowden, no further comment will be made.
