KOB Eyewitness News 4 has asked for as-of-yet unreleased recordings from the James Boyd shooting.

So far, we've seen the lapel camera video from Officer Dominic Perez, one of the two officers in the shooting.

However, on Wednesday, the city denied KOB's request for lapel camera and audio recordings from Officer Keith Sandy.

The city said the FBI wants to protect the integrity of the investigation.

Friday, the New Mexico State Police, also involved in the investigation, denied KOB's request.

State police said the FBI has specifically requested that evidence not be released.
