Holder Says Missouri Shooting Deserves Review

Monday, 11 Aug 2014 10:23 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder says the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in a St. Louis suburb deserves a full review.

Holder's statement Monday comes as the Justice Department dispatched its Community Relations Service to the scene to try and help calm the area's racial tension. The service helps communities resolve conflicts and tensions arising from racial differences.

The FBI is looking into possible civil rights violations in the shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown. Police said Brown was shot multiple times Saturday after an altercation with an officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Nearly three dozen people were arrested Sunday after crowds looted and burned stores and taunted officers.

Holder says aggressively pursuing these types of investigations is "critical for preserving trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve."
