Grand jury declines to indict McKinney City Council member accused of family violence


A Collin County grand jury declined to indict a McKinney City Council member accused of family violence, according to the county’s June 6 report.

McKinney City Council member La’Shadion Shemwell was arrested Dec. 6 on suspicion of continuous violence against the family, according to McKinney police. The grand jury’s decision not to indict means there was not sufficient evidence to prosecute. The charge was a third-degree felony.

Shemwell could not immediately be reached for comment.
