It’s also very rare for any law enforcement officer to be charged with a crime in the shooting of a suspect, Walker added.

“The standard is so high in terms of proving criminal intent,” he said.

The executive director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Florida, which has been working with Todashev’s family and conducting its own investigation, said he wants to see the details of Ashton’s report. Hassan Shibly pointed out that Todashev’s live-in girlfriend and others connected to the case have been deported since the shooting.

“The DOJ’s and the State Attorney’s investigations relied on evidence gathered by the FBI, and the only person who can contradict first-hand their narrative is dead,” Shibly said.

Associated Press Writer Curt Anderson contributed to this report from Miami.
