CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The court appearance for a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officer charged with shooting and killing a former Florida A & M football player was postponed Monday.

The probable cause hearing was continued until Dec. 7 at the request of the prosecution.

Randall Kerrick is facing voluntary manslaughter charges in the death of 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell.

Police say Kerrick fired 12 shots, with 10 of them hitting Ferrell.

The Mecklenburg County District Attorney handed the case over to the North Carolina Attorney General, citing a conflict of interest.
