The family of a Muslim leader killed by the FBI in Dearborn, Mich., wants to know what happened and who shot him more than five years ago because relatives suspect a cover-up.
The Detroit Free Press reports that family of Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah, 53, of Detroit, has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their case.
Abdullah was shot 20 times in October 2009 as part of an counterterrorism sting over what the FBI characterized as his extremist views and an illegal trafficking scheme.
The FBI has said it acted properly, but family and supporters believe he was a victim of an overzealous war on terrorism.
According to the official account, four FBI agents opened fire on Abdullah after he shot the bureau’s dog.
