Grand jury, internal investigation clears officers involved in Twin Peaks shooting

WACO - The three officers involved in the Twin Peaks shooting in May 2015 have been cleared by a grand jury and an internal investigation, according to a press release issued Sept. 13 by the Waco Police Department.

The McLennan County grand jury met on Sept. 13 and completed its review of the incident, returning a "no-bill" for each of the three officers.

According to the press release, the three officers were also cleared after an internal investigation was conducted by numerous local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, and reviewed by the Texas Rangers.

Interim Chief Frank Gentsch, upon hearing of the Grand Jury decision, stated "These officers acted professional under very difficult circumstances. I'm glad to have this caliber of officers protecting our city. I appreciate the job conducted by the Department Investigators, the Texas Rangers, the McLennan County DA's office and the Grand Jury in this case. I will be returning these officers to full duty immediately."
