SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Salt Lake County board has denied an American Civil Liberties Union appeal requesting the release of body-camera video from a police-involved shooting that crucially wounded a 17-year-old Somali refugee.

Salt Lake County Government Records Access and Management Appeals Board on Tuesday rejected the request for video from two officers, a surveillance video and at least 11 crime scene photos taken in connection to the shooting of Abdullahi “Abdi” Mohamed, saying releasing footage of the incident may interfere with the ongoing case against Mohamed.

The ACLU says it will appeal the decision again.

Salt Lake City officers Kory Checketts and Jordan Winegar shot Mohamed, a Somali refugee, four times on Feb. 27. Mohamed survived his injuries.
