FBI Opens Civil Rights Probe into Teen Who Ran Down Black Man in Miss.

Shades of Mississippi in the 1960s?

The FBI has opened a civil rights investigation into the death of a black man who Mississippi authorities say was intentionally run down and killed by a white teenager in a pickup truck in June near a Jackson hotel, the Associated Press reports.

Deborah Madden, an FBI spokeswoman in Mississippi, said Wednesday that the bureau is investigating the June 26 death of James Craig Anderson.

A surveillance video shows Deryl Dedmon running over Anderson near a hotel in a green 1998 Ford F-250, AP reported. The video stirred anger across the country. Dedmon is already facing a murder charge.

AP reported that John Aaron Rice has been charged with simple assault for assaulting Anderson before his death. Both teens were 18 at the time.

Mississippi authorities allege that Dedmon and Rice and a group of other teens were searching for a black person to assault.
