The Justice Department said on Tuesday that it was opening an investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department, after officers were involved in more than two dozen shootings, many of them fatal, over the past two years.

Natalie Gomez, the sister of Alan Gomez, who was killed by the Albuquerque police, attended a rally last year protesting the use of lethal force.

The investigation, which comes after a preliminary federal inquiry into the department, will focus on accusations that officers used excessive force, including unreasonable deadly force, when dealing with civilians.
"We will peel the onion to its core, and we will leave no stone unturned," Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, said at a news conference in Albuquerque.
