FBI joins Corey Jones investigation in Palm Beach Gardens

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- One day after Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw announced the FBI was joining the investigation into the shooting death of Corey Jones, a group of FBI investigators joined PBSO personnel at the site where Jones was fatally shot by Palm Beach Gardens undercover police officer Nouman Raja.

The sheriff's office released this statement late Friday afternoon:

In an effort to provide the family of Corey Jones and the Community with a thorough and accurate investigation, I have requested the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, to join in the investigation and they have agreed to do so. I welcome their expertise and believe that this will ensure the highest level of scrutiny and impartiality.

There have been many lessons learned from the tragic events that have occurred across the United States and there is nothing more important, now, than a comprehensive investigation process so we can ensure justice is served.
