Jim Wells County Sgt. Christopher Bowen is back at work after a fatal shooting that occurred in May at a home in Sandia.
Bowen stepped back into the JWC Sheriff's Department Friday and immediately got back to serving and protecting the county residents.
Sheriff Daniel Bueno received an email from the District Attorney's Office that stated the grand jury found that the facts surrounding the death of Sean Louis Justice, 28, did not support criminal charges against Bowen and that no further action is necessary.
Back in May, deputies responded to a call to a home on the 12000 block of North Highway 359. According to reports at the time of the shooting, Justice attempted to hurt himself and deputies who responded.
The SWAT team entered Justice home after he barricaded himself and attempts to make contact were disregarded. As the SAWT team approached Justice he swung a bayonet, a military knife, at Bowen. Bowen responded with a shot that hit Justice in the chest.
Bowen was placed on administrative leave with pay, pending investigation.
The DA's office has closed Bowen's investigation.
