APD holds on to critical incident briefing

Monday, October 26, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Austin Police Department has announced it will not be releasing the Critical Incident Community Briefing video for an officer-involved shooting. The shooting took place on Aug. 25 at the 6100 block of Manor Road. Officers attempting to serve a warrant were shot at by the suspect and returned fire. A release by the department explained that “a federal judge assigned to the officer-involved shooting case involving Austin Police Department officers working with the U.S. Marshal’s Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, issued a Protective Order that prohibits release of information related to the case until the conclusion of the criminal prosecution.” As a result, though it was produced in accordance with APD policy, the video will not be released.
