Board recommends more training after Lansing police shooting

LANSING, Mich. (AP) – A police review board is recommending additional training for officers following the 2015 fatal shooting of a home invasion suspect.

The Lansing Police Department on Tuesday released the findings of the Internal Review Board’s review of the death of 24-year-old Terrozza Griffin. Police say Griffin was killed after a two-hour standoff, house fire and an exchange of gunfire. Several officers were on leave after the shooting.

The board’s report suggests training for officers in responding at fire scenes where violence is possible as well as about officers’ rights and responsibilities after what police consider a so-called critical incident.

Following an investigation by Michigan State Police, a prosecutor earlier determined the officers acted within the law and followed department procedures in the Dec. 24, 2015 shooting.
