The FBI is investigating the death of a 7-year-old girl killed by a shot from a Detroit Police officer’s gun, U.S. Rep. John Conyers announced today.
Conyers said he asked for the review. In a statement today, he said Justice Department prosecutors assigned to the Criminal Rights Division will review the FBI’s findings. The Civil Rights Division looks into allegations of official misconduct and civil rights violations, including use of excessive force by police.
“The shooting of Aiyana Jones has shaken the entire city community, and it demands a thorough and independent investigation,” Conyers said in the statement.
