Grand jury to consider nightclub shooting death

An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury will decide next month whether to indict a security guard who fatally shot a Baker man last summer in front of a Baton Rouge nightclub.
The guard was not booked in the shooting death of 32-year-old Corey A. Kaufman. Detectives determined the guard acted in self-defense after Kaufman pointed a gun at him in front of Club Sha La.
District Attorney Hillar Moore says prosecutors, after reviewing the evidence and meeting with Kaufman's family, elected to present the case to a grand jury July 17.
Kaufman's family filed a lawsuit claiming the security guard used excessive force when he fired multiple times through Kaufman's windshield as the man was attempting to leave.
