Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was a tragedy unlike any this area has ever seen.

Yet a review of the ACA shootings was never conducted.

Broome County District Attorney Gerald Mollen told Action News, there was no need for one.

Such a review was called for in 2006.

That January, 3 police officers shot and killed a mentally ill man in Binghamton, after he lunged at an officer with a knife.

Questions surrounding the events of that day, and whether deadly force was needed, prompted an investigation by the DA's office.

Whereas Mollen says all details of the ACA shooting were thoroughly reported by the media.

"The basics of what information the police have, we have, the FBI has is all in the public domain and has been extensively documented," said Mollen.

Mollen says he also didn't want to put the victims families through it all over again.
