City officials are petitioning to the court to halt the release of documents that could impact the Amber Guyger shooting investigation.
Fox 4 News in Dallas reports the D.A.’s office is attempting to halt the release of Amber Guyger’s 911 call from the night of the shooting as well as her personnel file.
The city has received 41 requests for everything ranging from the former officer’s personnel file to 911 calls made after the shooting to what time she clocked in and out the day of the shooting. The city attorney’s office is seeking to deny them all.
First Assistant District Attorney Mike Snipes says releasing the 911 calls before the trial could cause potential jurors to form an opinion about the case. He said: “We don’t want to have the venue shifted out of Dallas County.”
“If you can keep John Wiley Price case here in Dallas County with the publicity that had, then I don’t see why this case would ever be moved out of Dallas,” Washington said.
The Texas attorney general’s office will have 45 days to make the final desision to whether or not the documents will be released. For the full news report, courtesy of Fox 4, flip the page.
