(KIMA-TV) A jury found John Saul justified in shooting Cesar Chavira to death back in May in Walla Walla’s New York Store.

An attorney for Chavira’s family stated a wrongful death civil suit will be filed against Saul.

Walla Walla’s prosecuting attorney will be reviewing case and decide what the next step is.

Owner John Saul said he caught Cesar Chavez stealing belts and buckles red-handed before unloading as many as five shotgun rounds into the 22-year-old.
