ATLANTA (AP) — A grand jury in Georgia has recommended that no charges be brought against officers involved in a raid that seriously injured a toddler when a flash grenade detonated in his playpen.
WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1s5BD32 ) the grand jury made its recommendation Monday.
Bounkham Phonesavanh (BOON'-kahm fohn-SAH'-vahn) was 19 months old at the time of the raid in late May. Family members have said the boy has undergone numerous surgeries.
Members of a law enforcement task force looking for a drug suspect threw the flash grenade into the home where the boy was staying while executing a search warrant. The suspect they were seeking was not in the home at the time.
Mawuli Davis, a lawyer for the family, said he needed to talk to his clients before commenting.
