Albuquerque police released lapel camera video from just one of the two officers involved in the shooting of a homeless man in the foothills, but KOB Eyewitness News 4's request for the other recordings has been denied.

The city denied KOB's request for recordings from officer Keith Sandy on Wednesday. The video currently released to the public came from officer Dominique Perez.

The city says the FBI wants to protect the "integrity" of the investigation.

On Friday, New Mexico State Police also denied KOB's request for lapel camera and audio recordings from the shooting. State police officials said the FBI has specifically requested that evidence not be released.
