A North Carolina judge says he will decide soon whether to release recordings from the police video camera that captured the shooting death of a University of North Carolina student
Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that Superior Court Judge Brad Long will decide whether to unseal the video that shows the events surrounding the shooting of 21-year-old Courtland Smith.
Several media outlets including The Associated Press have requested access to the dashboard camera video from the car that pulled Smith over last month.
Radio traffic recordings indicate shots were fired 35 seconds after officers stopped Smith's car.
Smith had called 911 while on the road, saying he was trying to kill himself, had been drinking and was carrying a gun.
