Complete statement from the Silver Spring Justice Coalition:
The Silver Spring Justice Coalition is angry at the lack of transparency in this shooting in Bethesda. We expect our local leaders to raise hell about the failure to disclose the circumstances of this shooting. What does it say when the federal government can come into our county and do whatever they want with no accountability. Recently federal law enforcement has also abused Black citizens of the District of Columbia during counter-protests against white supremacists. All of the many law enforcement agencies that intertwine in the capital area - from park police to Capitol police to FBI and secret service, on top of our local departments, operating without accountability, make our local residents all the less safe, even in the rare cases when we make progress in our efforts to reform county or state laws.
The FBI provided a statement shortly after the incident – but have not released any information since:
The FBI is reviewing an Agent-Involved-Shooting which occurred earlier this morning aboard a Red Line train near Medical Center, Montgomery County, Maryland. One individual was wounded and since transported to a local area hospital for medical assistance.
The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents seriously. In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is under investigation by the FBI’s Inspection Division. The review process is thorough and objective and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances. As this remains an on-going matter, the FBI has no further comment.
FOX 5 has reached out to the FBI for additional on Thursday.
