Federal investigators are taking over the probe of the shooting death of a Baton Rouge man.

City and state officials said they support the decision because it will provide more transparency, People.com reports. 

Sterling was shot by police as he appeared to be pinned down by officers.

The FBI and Justice Department are investigating.

“An altercation between Sterling and the officers ensued,” according to an earlier statement from Baton Rouge police. “Sterling was shot during the altercation and died at the scene.”

A 48-second video taken by a witness has circulated online, igniting anger over another black man killed by police.
