San Francisco police probed after shooting of black man

The US Justice Department announced the launch of an investigation into the police force in San Francisco, the latest to face national scrutiny over the use of excessive force in fatal incidents involving African Americans. The federal investigation comes two months after the fatal shooting of a black man triggered outrage in the Californian city, and follows similar probes into suspected police misconduct in Baltimore, Ferguson and, most recently, Chicago. Local residents and citizen groups in San Francisco were calling for the federal government to step in after video footage of a 26-year-old black man named Mario Woods dying in a hail of police bullets went viral in December.
