MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Attorneys for the family of a 19-year-old black man killed by a white Memphis police officer during a scuffle are offering a $2,500 reward to anyone who captured the entire encounter on video or audio.

Attorney Carlos Moore announced the reward in a news release Wednesday.

That was a day after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released its case files on Officer Connor Schilling’s fatal July 17 shooting of Darrius Stewart. They revealed the officer and some witnesses disagreed over whether a second shot came as the two were struggling or as Stewart tried to run away.

Anyone with a recording is asked to contact the Memphis law firm of Horne & Wells.

Moore says attorneys would turn over any recording to the Department of Justice, which is reviewing the case.
