Within weeks of the shooting, the Fulton County District Attorney’s office was provided evidence from the Robinson Family Legal Team which led the DA’s office to initiate a formal investigation. The DA’s investigation is ongoing but none of the marshals involved have presented themselves to be interviewed by the DA’s office.
“It has to be unacceptable for Federal marshals to shoot a citizen 76 times and not have to give an interview to the DA’s office for a year. This is unreal. The Federal government should be the standard bearer for transparency and accountability. ” Family Attorney Mawuli Mel Davis
