The Attorney General’s office says there will be no further review of the Bristol County District Attorney’s investigation into the fatal shooting of Malcolm Gracia.

15-year-old Gracia was shot and killed by New Bedford Police in May 2012, after he stabbed an officer.

D.A. Sam Sutter’s office launched an investigation the next month, and found no wrong-doing on the part of police officers.

In January, the ACLU and NAACP called for an inquest and an investigation of Sutter’s review by Martha Coakley’s office. Coakley’s office has denied those requests, saying any issues should be taken up with the District Attorney’s office.

In a written statement, Sutter says he’s ready to sit down and talk about the concerns of those who called for further review.
