ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The family of an unarmed black college football player who was fatally shot by a white North Texas police officer is asking prosecutors to refile charges in the case after a grand jury declined to take any action against the officer.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/25QLaAn ) that attorney Michael Heiskell, who represents the family of 19-year-old Christian Taylor, sent a letter Friday to Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson saying the family was “saddened and dismayed” by the grand jury’s decision on Wednesday.

Taylor was shot by Arlington police trainee Brad Miller in August 2015 in a car dealership after police responded to a burglary call. Miller was later fired.

On Friday, one person was arrested by police during a protest in Arlington of the grand jury’s decision.
