Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Dillon Police deny records request for Summit Cove shooting

Summit Daily: Citing an ongoing investigation into the officers who shot and killed 18-year-old Charlie Foster in Summit Cove last month, law enforcement agencies have denied records requests for body-camera footage related to the shooting.

Summit County Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons wrote in a denial to Summit Daily’s records requests for all video footage related to the July 9 shooting that he is worried that its release could interfere with ongoing investigations and the privacy of those involved.

“While I appreciate the need for transparency, it is important to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation regarding the law enforcement officers’ use of force,” FitzSimons wrote in the July 12 denial.
