November 17, 2015 (Minneapolis)—Today Mayor Betsy Hodges made the following  statement today after learning that the FBI and Department of Justice have agreed to her request and have initiated a criminal civil rights investigation into the police-involved shooting of Jamar Clark.
“I thank the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger’s Office for agreeing to a criminal civil rights investigation into the officer-involved shooting this past weekend,” said Mayor Betsy Hodges. “I made this request because I believe that it is the best way to build confidence in the process for everyone involved and concerned.
