Justice Dept. Conducting Routine Probe of FBI Fatal Shooting of Imam in Michigan

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has launched a routine investigation into the fatal FBI shooting in Michigan of a Muslim imam in October, the Detroit News reported.

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mi), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who had asked the Justice Department to probe the matter, announced the news at a press conference Tuesday.

The paper reported that Justice Department spokesman Alejandro Miyar confirmed the investigation, but said it would have happened regardless of Conyers’ request.

“The FBI’s inspection division conducted a review,” Miyar said, according to the Detroit News. “The civil rights division has received the FBI’s report and is now conducting an independent review of the shooting.”

An autopsy report on Monday showed Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah was shot 21 times during a raid on a Dearborn warehouse. The FBI was conducting a probe of the trafficking of stolen goods.

The FBI says that the imam opened fire first and shot an FBI dog before agents returned fire.
