ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia prosecutor is suing the U.S. Department of Justice over its refusal to provide information about how officers shot 59 bullets into a schizophrenic college student.
 
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said Friday that federal authorities have blocked his prosecutors from interviewing the officers who killed 26-year-old Jamarion Robinson.
 
Robinson died in a hail of gunfire after a fugitive task force broke down the door of a suburban Atlanta apartment in August 2016.
 
State investigators later said a handgun found at the scene was "believed to be associated with Robinson."
 
Police have said Robinson was suspected of shooting at Atlanta officers that summer, and members of the task force had gone to the apartment to arrest him.
