The Justice Department says it will determine whether any federal civil rights laws were violated.

THE BRONX - The Justice Department is going to take a look at the Ramarley Graham case.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says it will review all of the evidence available to determine whether any federal civil rights laws were violated after a second grand jury indictment was dismissed against officer Richard Haste in the fatal shooting of the teenager.

The Graham family and their supporters had rallied throughout the day Thursday, demanding that the federal government intervene.

Haste chased the 18-year-old into his home in Feb. 2012 following an apparent drug deal.

Another rally is planned for Saturday outside the 47th Precinct.
