The grand jury is set to meet as prosecutors decide whether to charge Noor in Damond's death.

Minneapolis' police union president Bob Kroll said at least 30 police officers have been subpoenaed as part of the grand jury investigation. Kroll said those individuals are primarily Noor's trainers and academy teachers. He reiterated that a bulk of the subpoenas were "far-reaching."

Kroll said the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension did a thorough investigation and said officers at the scene and associated with Noor have already cooperated and given interviews.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has said he will still make the final decision on whether to file charges in the case.
