“It’s a search for the truth.”

– Racine County District Attorney Rich Chiapete

From Journal Times:

Racine police involved shooting reports expected to go to DA next week

RACINE — One month to the day since Donte D. Shannon was shot by Racine police after allegedly brandishing a gun, the Wisconsin Department of Justice investigation into the incident is nearing completion.

In a statement Friday afternoon, Johnny Koremenos, the director of communications for the DOJ, wrote: “DOJ anticipates having all investigative reports and evidence to the DA next week for review.”

Racine County District Attorney Tricia Hanson will be the one to decide if charges against the two officers involved in the shooting are merited, according to the DOJ.

Hanson, speaking Jan. 29 to a crowd of demonstrators outside the Racine County Courthouse, 730 Wisconsin Ave., said that when the report is finished, she will need time to review it and then will sit down with the family.

“They get to be first in this process,” she said. “The entire investigation will be published after I have an opportunity to meet with the family … I will make every effort to achieve total transparency with the community. I understand you have questions, and those questions need to be answered. I just can’t answer them now.”

Nakia Shannon, Donte Shannon’s father, said he was disappointed to learn the status of the investigation from the newspaper and would have preferred to have heard directly from the Department of Justice.
