Islamic group calls for probe into Fla. shooting

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on the Department of Justice Wednesday to investigate the shooting of an associate of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev by an FBI agent, citing news reports that the man was unarmed when he died.

FBI and Justice Department officials could not immediately comment on whether there will be a separate inquiry into the shooting, but noted that the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division has access to all evidence being collected in the current FBI investigation.
