SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — California Attorney General Rob Bonta will review the fatal shooting of Banko Brown at a San Francisco Walgreens after prosecutors declined to press charges.

The California Department of Justice action comes after San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said she would not press charges against the security guard who shot and killed Brown inside a Walgreens on April 27. Michael Earl-Wayne Anthony, a security guard at the One Street store, was charged with fatally shooting Brown, 24, in what police are calling a shoplifting incident.
