DALLAS — The case against a white Dallas police officer who shot and killed a black neighbor in his home will be presented to a grand jury, which could decide on more serious charges than manslaughter , the district attorney overseeing the case said Monday.

Wongshue’s arrest stemmed from a May 7, 2018, shooting in the parking lot of Colonial Plaza.

The Police Department said Wongshue and Officer Juan Abreu, a trainee, were responding to an unrelated crash when an employee from the Marshall’s store alerted them that two women were shoplifting.

The women entered a van driven by Juan Alberto Silva, 32. A cell phone video obtained by WKMG-Channel 6 showed the officers standing on either side of the van as it began to speed away.

One officer fired into the driver’s side while the other fired into a rear window, the video showed.

Officers found the car about a mile away and Silva was pronounced dead.

A police affidavit said Silva had “accelerated towards the patrol officer on the driver’s side."

The shoplifting suspects in Silva’s van, Jocelyn M. Villot and Brittany L. Chandler, were arrested by OPD on charges including felony murder.

However, prosecutors opted against pursuing that charge, which under state law can be used to prosecute for murder a person committing a felony if someone dies as a result of the felony.

Villot and Chandler both pleaded no contest to third-degree grand theft and resisting an officer without violence. A judge withheld adjudication on Villot, meaning she was not convicted. Chandler was adjudicated guilty, according to court records.

Wongshue and Abreu did not have working body cameras during the incident. The Police Department said Wongshue’s camera was not working and Abreu hadn’t yet been issued one.

After the shooting, Abreu’s family questioned why officers had opened fire. OPD enacted a policy in June 2016 which prohibits shooting into moving vehicles in most cases.
