Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Providence police Chief Dean Esserman says the investigation into the arrest of the man accused of fatally shooting a police officer is in the hands of the F-B-I, and his department is waiting for the findings.

Esserman says the F-B-I has done interviews, and he has met with the agency.

The chief doesn't know when the investigation will be done. An F-B-I spokeswoman wouldn't comment.

Providence Mayor David Cicilline reiterated that he wants the probe completed, (quote) "as expeditiously as possible."

The F-B-I is leading the review into how Esteban Carpio was treated during and after his capture. He's accused of shooting

Detective Sergeant James Allen with Allen's own weapon.

After Carpio appeared in court bruised and bleeding, Carpio's family alleged police of brutality, and the N-Double-A-C-P asked the F-B-I to lead an investigation.
