The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office is requesting that a Grand Jury convene to determine whether James Griffin, 25, be charged.

He was arrested on a preliminary count of voluntary manslaughter after the shooting, Sunday, Dec. 11, in the 1300 block of 31st Street.

The shooting stemmed from a family fight, according to the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit.

The Grand Jury has been requested in light of previous violent interactions between the shooting victim, Curdin Gizewski, 25, and Griffin and whether the shooting was a case of self-defense, defense of others or justifiable homicide, the prosecutor’s office stated.

Griffin is set to be released from custody pending the Grand Jury
