DETROIT (AP) - Prosecutors will conduct a separate and independent investigation into the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old Detroit man by a federal agent.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Wednesday that it has received paperwork from state and Detroit police following the April 27 death of Terrance Kellom.

Kellom was shot by an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer who was part of a task force seeking him on armed robbery and weapons charges.

His death came amid a national debate over police conduct, particularly toward black men, since black 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a white policeman in Ferguson, Missouri last August. Violence erupted in Baltimore this month over a black man who died there in police custody.

Kellom was black, as is the ICE agent who shot him.
