Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said that her office plans to reopen the case of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Black man who was shot to death by a transit police officer in Oakland in 2009, according to NBC News.
Grant's death caused widespread outrage as well as protests in Oakland and was one of the first police shootings caught on cellphone video. The hours before Grant was killed were chronicled in the well-regarded 2013 film Fruitvale Station, starring Michael B. Jordan as Grant.
