DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA -- A Durham County grand jury says a gas station clerk shouldn't be prosecuted for chasing and shooting a man after the store was robbed at gunpoint.
The jurors said Monday the case had been investigated enough and ordered that "no further action be taken in this matter by law enforcement authorities or the district attorney of this county."
The grand jury could have called for further investigation or told prosecutors to seek charges against clerk Atta Rehman, who said he was acting in self-defense.
The jury also indicted Rodney Lamont Cameron on a charge of armed robbery.
Cameron, 31, of Rougemont, was shot in the chest and face with a shotgun following an armed robbery at an Amoco station on Chapel Hill Boulevard.
The brother of the station owner told police that Rehman acted in self-defense after a man entered the store with a mask on his face and a long-barreled gun.
The robber forced everyone onto the floor before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police reports. Rehman chased the robber, who threatened Rehman before the shooting, the reports said.
