(AP) - The Justice Department will conduct a comprehensive review of the San Francisco Police Department, which is facing scrutiny over the shooting death of a young black man. Mayor Ed Lee asked the Justice Department to investigate.

Authorities plan to announce details of the review by the department's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services this afternoon.

The Dec. 2 shooting of Mario Woods by five officers has increased racial tensions and sparked calls for the removal of Police Chief Greg Suhr.

Police said only one of the five officers involved was white, but protests over the shooting continue.
