The Middlesex District Attorney is out today with more than 400 pages of documents related to the 2011 police killing of a Black man in his home in Framingham.

Eurie Stamps, 68, was watching a Celtics game when a SWAT team entered his house on a warrant, looking for his stepson. He was ordered to the ground, and while down, he was shot and killed by a Framingham police officer.

The DA at the time ruled the shooting officer tripped, and the death was an accident. The officer was never criminally charged.

Middlesex DA Marian Ryan is now reviewing that case, and joins us to talk about its status. We also hear from Selvin Chambers, a friend of the Stamps family and spokesperson for the group #JusticeforEurie, who shares his thoughts on the new review of the case.

Note: Chambers accidentally combined the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, two Black men killed by police.
