Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox says he won't file criminal charges in the fatal shooting last year of a Detroit mosque leader during an FBI raid.

Cox says FBI agents were justified in shooting Luqman Ameen Abdullah 20 times when they tried to arrest him during a sting operation at a Dearborn warehouse.

Cox says the investigation shows Abdullah was armed, resisted arrested and rejected demands to surrender. He says it's "undisputed" that the imam fired a gun at agents. The attorney general's report was released Thursday.

The FBI says Abdullah was a leader of a radical Sunni group that wants to create an Islamic state within the U.S. His family has denied allegations that he was anti-government. He was killed 11 months ago. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
