INDIANAPOLIS – The man accused of shooting four people in what he claims was a case of self-defense will be released from the Marion County Jail today now that the charges against him will be heard by a grand jury.

Tristan Crayton’s attorney, Alan Ladd, told Fox 59 News that he has been informed by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office that a notice to not file charges has been submitted.

Ladd said he expected his client’s case will be heard by a Marion County Grand Jury next month.

Crayton is accused of wounding four people after being attacked outside early on the morning of August 2. Crayton said his friends were being assaulted and he retrieved a gun from his car to defend himself.

None of those who were wounded suffered life-threatening injuries.

Crayton was being held on charges of aggravated battery and an $80,000 bond.
