PASCO, Wash. (AP) - The high-profile attorney for the family of a black teenager killed by an officer in Ferguson, Missouri, says he's representing the parents of an unarmed Mexican man who was shot to death by police this month in Washington state.

Benjamin Crump tells The Associated Press that Antonio Zambrano-Montes' parents worry about the fairness of an investigation into the Feb. 10 shooting.

The Florida-based Crump has represented the families of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

Zambrano-Montes' death has sparked calls for a federal probe. Authorities say the 35-year-old man was throwing rocks at officers.

The Franklin County coroner has ordered an inquest into the death, which is being reviewed by a regional task force and being monitored by federal authorities. An update from the regional task force is expected Thursday.
