Prosecutors acknowledged that because a grand jury didn’t file any charges against McIver Jr. within the required 90 days, they wouldn’t stop him from being released.

But they also say he should and will still be prosecuted for attempted capital murder.

The Tarrant County District Attorney’s office will present its case to a second grand jury.
