Charleston civil rights supporters are calling for an investigation into a “troubling and outrageous trend” lethal police force against black men, the Post and Courier reports.

Don Scott, president of the city’s NAACP, said Saturday’s shooting of a black man is one of four police-involved shootings since March 2012.

Scott said officers have declared “open hunting season on black men.”

Justice Department officials would not comment on the request for an investigation.
