The US Department of Justice on Monday announced the launch of an investigation into the San Francisco police force, two months after the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old black man triggered outrage in the city.

"The Justice Department will conduct a thorough, independent and objective assessment of the San Francisco Police Department's policies, practices and accountability systems," Ronald Davis, director of the Justice Department's community policing office, said in a statement, as cited by AFP.

Similar probes have been opened into suspected police abuses in Chicago and Baltimore, where protests erupted over fatal incidents involving young black men.
