The family of a mentally ill black Milwaukee man who was fatally shot by a white police officer in April said Tuesday they are hopeful the officer will be charged after the Justice Department announced it will review the case for civil rights violations. 

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said Monday that his office will not pursue charges against former Officer Christopher Manney in connection with Dontra Hamilton’s death.
