DETROIT -- U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, along with a coalition of civil rights and Muslim activists, again is calling for a Justice Department investigation into last fall's shooting of a Detroit imam by FBI agents. The cleric's long-awaited autopsy report was released Monday.

Conyers and the others will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Detroit to reiterate a request that the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division investigate the death of Luqman Ameen Abdullah. Abdullah died from 21 gunshot wounds, according to the autopsy.

The autopsy was completed in November, but the report's release was put off until Monday at the request of Dearborn, Mich., police because the incident remains under investigation. The shooting happened at a Dearborn warehouse.

The investigation is likely to take several more weeks, Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said Monday, noting the results are to be sent to Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox.
