Chief Sam Dotson says once the circuit attorney's office has done its review he will release all of the evidence he legally can.

In a statement Friday, Circuit Attorney Jennifer M. Joyce said:

I have assembled a team of experienced prosecutors, including an Assistant U.S. Attorney, who will now begin the investigation into the events of that evening in the Shaw neighborhood. We will expeditiously review all the facts and evidence.  We will conduct our own witness interviews to get to the truth of the circumstances of the shooting.

I have personally met with members of the Myers’ family, and members of my office continue to be in contact with the family’s attorneys. We have asked that they provide any information that may assist us in this review process. I request the same of any member of the public.
