Moultrie-  Representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice came to Moultrie Tuesday to listen to complaints from citizens upset over a fatal police shooting.

The Justice Department held a community forum after Hispanic crimes escalated last year in Colquitt County. In the wake of the recent Willie Banks shooting, the justice department was called in again.

They met with community groups Tuesday afternoon to discuss how the community as a whole can better respond when shootings and violence like those acts occur.

Officer Bruce Hamm shot Banks as officers tried to serve a warrant against him in November.
