FBI Director James Comey addressed the shooting of an unarmed black teen in Ferguson during a visit to the bureau’s Salt Lake City office Tuesday, saying agents are on the ground looking for answers, the Associated Press reports.
“We have flooded the area,” Comey said.
The director declined to divulge specifics of the case but said agents are looking for witnesses to the shooting.
The death of Michael Brown sparked outrage and continuing protests in Ferguson.
Comey’s statements come during his tour of the agency’s 56 field offices.
