“I commend interim District Attorney Hodge in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for her decision to hand over the investigation of the shooting and death of David Jones. I am encouraged that Attorney General Shapiro’s office has agreed to take it on. I have long been an advocate for – and have introduced legislation on – independent investigations by the Pennsylvania Attorney General in shooting cases that involve police officers. Independent investigations improve and maintain trust. Trust in the justice system is critical for all parties involved, and this is a positive step.”
