MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The United States Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee provided a statement about the Tyre Nichols investigation.

It was held by Kevin Ritz on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. at the U.S. attorney’s office on North Main Street.

The US attorney’s office has opened a criminal and civil rights investigation. Ritz says the federal and civil rights investigation will be thorough and methodical.

Ritz also acknowledged the significant public interest in the release of the video shown to the family.

The state and local authorities have the responsibility for determining when to release video of this incident to the public. I will say on behalf of the federal authorities, we want people to express their right to be heard but we want them to do so in a peaceful and non-violent way.
