HONOLULU (AP) — The Honolulu Police Department will not release body camera footage worn by the officers who shot and killed a 16-year-old boy because juveniles were involved.

Spokeswoman Sarah Yoro says the department also won’t release 911 recordings from the shooting earlier this month. Yoro didn’t immediately answer questions seeking additional information.
