Karla St. Shooting Case Heads To Grand Jury

Newschannel 6 has received new information about the Karla St. shooting that left one man dead, a neighborhood in shock and a family still searching for answers.

Sgt.. John Spragins confirmed that the Rocky Joe Buckley case is going to the Grand Jury less than six months after the deadly shooting that happened.

Officers were called to the 4700 block of Karla St. just after 6:30 p.m. on July 26 where the caller said he shot someone. When police arrived, numerous people were standing around the yard and driveway. They found Rocky Joe Buckley, 32, lying on the ground. The shooter was also still at scene.

Police said there was an ongoing argument between the two men. Buckley had come to the home to confront the resident. The resident said he felt threatened and feared for his safety when Buckley charged him. He shot the Buckley one time in the abdomen. First responders took Buckley to United Regional, where he died from his wound.

Buckley's family tells a different story, describing the shooter as a family friend who had invited Buckley to his home to pick something up. According to family members, Buckley also brought his 15-year-old daughter along with him.

The police department ended their investigation in December and turned the findings over to the District Attorneys Office.

Newschannel 6 will continue to follow this case as it makes its way the Grand Jury.
