NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Andrew Delke was indicted by a Davidson County grand jury on a first-degree murder charge Friday. 

The desicion came after preliminary hearings. Davidson County General Sessions Judge Melissa Blackburn sent the case to a Grand Jury last week. 

Prosecutors and defense attorneys spent two days arguing evidence in the case against Officer Andrew Delke.  

Delke shot and killed Daniel Hambrick on July 26, 2018 after Hambrick ran from the officer.  

Prosecutors emphasized that Hambrick was shot in the head while the defense maintained Delke followed police protocol and his training.   

The prosecution maintains Delke’s use of force was unjustified, highlighting time and again that Hambrick was shot in the back while running away from the 25-year-old officer.
