ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque authorities have released new video footage related to a fatal police shooting but it doesn’t show the shooting or the events leading to the deadly encounter.
The lapel camera footage released this week connected to the July shooting of 33-year-old Jeremy Robertson shows little new information except officers walking around the scene.
Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman Janet Blair says no lapel video of the shooting exists.
Albuquerque police said agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were seeking to take Robertson into custody when he fled from detectives at a gas station. As Robertson ran away, authorities say he pulled a handgun from his waist before he was shot.
Albuquerque police also have been under scrutiny for 41 police shootings - 27 of them fatal - since 2010.
