Ga. official to request federal review of raid

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - A Georgia state senator said he will ask U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates to investigate a police raid where a Georgia toddler was severely burned by a flash grenade. <br /> <br /> State Sen. Vincent Fort joined 19-month-old Bounkham Phonesavanh's family at a prayer vigil outside Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta on Monday. The boy's mother said a fever may delay a planned surgery. <br /> <br /> Family attorney Mawuli Mel Davis said no evidence has been collected from the home raided on May 28. Earlier, Habersham County District Attorney Brian Rickman said his office is investigating whether any officials involved should face criminal charges. A call to his office was not immediately returned. <br /> <br /> Police have said officers were looking for a suspect who may have been armed and didn't know children were inside.
