Pharrell Williams has called for a federal investigation, after his cousin was shot dead by police in the US.

The Grammy-winning artist went to Donovon Lynch’s funeral this week.

Donovon, who was 25, was shot and killed in Virginia on March 26 by a police officer, after three separate shootings in the area.

Virginia Beach Police Department VBPD said he was “brandishing a handgun” before he was shot. Officers said the gun was recovered afterwards.

The force says a criminal investigation into what happened is ongoing.

There will also be an independent investigation by a prosecutor and a review by VBPD’s internal affairs department.

But Pharrell says there are “too many unanswered city and state questions” so is calling for an investigation at a higher federal level.
