The U.S. Justice Department is launching a civil investigation into the policies and training involving deadly force in the Miami Police Department following the deaths of seven black men in officer-involved shootings.

The “pattern and practice” probe will focus on whether systemic flaws made the shootings, which occurred over an eight-month period between July 2010 and February 2011, more likely.

“The department’s investigation will seek to determine whether there are systemic violations of the Constitution or federal law by officers of MPD,” the Justice Department said in a statement.
