FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts prosecutor says her office will review the investigation into the 2011 fatal shooting by police of an unarmed 68-year-old Black man during a drug raid targeting his stepson and another man.
Eurie Stamps was shot and killed in a Framingham apartment in January 2011 by the Framingham police SWAT team.
The Middlesex district attorney’s office had previously ruled the shooting an accident and the officer who fired the fatal shot was not criminally charged. The town later reached a $3.75 million settlement with the Stamps family.
Current Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan was not the district attorney at the time.
“The death of Eurie Stamps has had a profound impact on his family, friends and the entire community,” Ryan said in an emailed statement Thursday to The MetroWest Daily News. “We recognize how important it is that the public has confidence in these types of investigations, which is why we are in the process of gathering and reviewing the documents relative to the investigation that was conducted by the previous administration into the death of Mr. Stamps.”
