FBI to assist in probe of Texas football player's death

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Police have asked the FBI to participate in the investigation into the death of a Texas college football player who was fatally shot by an officer during a burglary call at a car dealership.
 
Arlington police officer Brad Miller, who is white, is on administrative leave after the early Friday shooting of 19-year-old Christian Taylor, who is black.
 
During a news conference Saturday night, Police Chief Will Johnson said a special FBI agent in charge of the Dallas field office would take part in the probe. He stressed it ``in no way diminishes my confidence in the Arlington police department's ability'' to investigate.
 
Johnson said Miller and another officer found Taylor ``freely roaming'' inside the dealership. The other officer used his Taser. Miller fired four rounds from his service weapon.
