A Hennepin County grand jury will look into the matter of Terrance Franklin, 22, who was killed in a struggle with police in a south Minneapolis basement in May.

Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau says she was told by the Hennepin County Attorney's office late Wednesday that the case will go before a grand jury next month, the Associated Press reports.

Officials say 22-year-old Terrance Franklin was killed May 10 after he tried to grab an officer's gun. Franklin's family has disputed the police account, as KSTP-TV reports.

Police say Franklin fled a traffic stop and broke into a house in south Minneapolis, where he struggled with officers and a police dog, says Minnesota Public Radio. Franklin was killed, and two officers were hit with gunfire. Both officers survived.

The police chief says she won't comment until after the grand jury reaches a decision, says the AP.

In fact, mum's been the word around City Hall on the snafu, as this fresh editorial in the Star Tribune, marking the three months since Franklin's death, attests.

There is a Facebook page set up in memorial of Franklin and includes info about a rally coming up on Saturday.
