FBI Probing Beavercreek Police Shooting

Federal Bureau of Investigation

The new head of the FBI's Cincinnati division says agents are conducting a thorough review of last year's shooting of a black man by a white Beavercreek police officer. Angela Byers tells the Associated Press there's no timetable for completion, and she declines to discuss details.  Byers says agents are working with the U.S.  Attorney's Office and the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.  Federal authorities announced plans for an independent review after a grand jury declined to indict the officer, Sean Williams, in the death 22-year-old John Crawford III last August.
