CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Four New Hampshire officers injured in a 2012 shootout with a suspected drug dealer who shot to death the Greenland police chief are asking a federal judge to order the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to release information about the shootings.

The Telegraph of Nashua reports (https://bit.ly/1dHjsfi) the officers filed a lawsuit last week saying the ATF hasn’t met public disclosure requirements under the Freedom of Information Act.

The officers believe the records include evidence that could be used in their lawsuit against the shooter’s mother, Beverly Mutrie. They sued her in July 2012, saying she “facilitated” her son’s criminal enterprise by supplying him weapons and a car. A judge dismissed the lawsuit, but the officers’ lawyer recently argued for a reinstatement before the state Supreme Court.
