The Michigan Attorney General said the FBI violated no state laws when it fatally shot a Detroit mosque leader Luqman Ameen Abdullah during a raid of a suburban warehouse last October, the Detroit News reported.

“My office’s review found undisputed evidence that Mr. Abdullah resisted arrest and fired a gun first in the direction of the agents,” Attorney General Mike Cox said, according to the News. “Under Michigan law, law enforcement agents are justified in using deadly force in these types of situations, and therefore we found no crimes.”

Abdullah, an imam, was shot 20 times by FBI agents after he reportedly fired a weapon and killed an FBI dog. The shooting occurred during a raid on a warehouse in Dearborn in connection with stolen goods.

The Justice Department is currently reviewing an internal FBI probe of the matter, the News reported.
