JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A Hinds County grand jury will not indict four Jackson police officers involved in recent shooting deaths, including the officer who pulled the trigger in two separate cases.

The April grand jury report, released Tuesday, shows no-billed cases, meaning the grand jury did not indict in these instances.

Officer RaKasha Adams is listed twice, under homicide cases that took place in 2018 and 2017.

In March, 3 On Your Side confirmed through multiple sources that Adams shot and killed Nathaniel Fleming in November in an apparent self-defense case and also, nearly three months later, was one of the officers who killed Crystalline Barnes January 27, though we did not release her name at the time.

Documentation shows Officer Albert Taylor was also involved in the same case as Adams, and no-billed as well.

In addition, a source with the Hinds County Sheriff's Office confirmed another officer on this grand jury list, Warren Hull, was involved in the shooting death of Lee Bonner back in February.

The grand jury document also lists Officer Roy Dickerson as being cleared of homicide on the same case.

Per JPD policy, all four can now return to duty since they've been cleared by a grand jury.
