Mom of 15-year-old killed by Oklahoma police sues for video

first_imgOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The mother of 15-year-old boy who was shot to death by Oklahoma City police in November is asking a judge to order the city to “immediately furnish” footage from officers’ body cameras. A lawsuit filed Tuesday argues that the city is violating state law by failing to release the footage of the Nov. 23 shooting of Stavian Rodriguez. The Oklahoman reports that the suit contends the recordings are public records subject to disclosure. Attorney Rand Eddy initially sought the recordings in a Dec. 14 letter written on behalf of the boy’s mother, Cameo Holland. Eddy says the city has yet to produce the recordings or say why it won’t.last_img
