Oates has ordered TRB reviews of two previous incidents: the December 2003 fatal shooting of Jamaal Bonner at the Top Star Motel, and the 2008 investigation into the triple vehicular homicide by Francis Hernandez.
In each case, the TRB made substantive recommendations that led to improvements in APD policy and training.
The TRB will not complete its work or release a report until after the district attorney makes public her findings on the shooting and the department’s internal affairs investigation is completed.
