Statement from Harris County District Attorney on Nicolas Chavez

September 10, 2020 

The following is a statement from Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg regarding the shooting death of Nicolas Chavez:

I met with the mother, father and wife of Nicolas Chavez to listen to their concerns and personally assure them that our Civil Rights Division prosecutors will conduct a thorough, independent review of all the evidence in his death. Once we complete our review, we will present the case directly to a grand jury. That grand jury will determine whether the Houston Police officers who shot Nicolas Chavez were justified or whether they committed a crime.
