Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Releases Reports From LaVoy Finicum Shooting
The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office has released hundreds of pages of documents from its investigation into the shooting death of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, a key figure in the takeover of a national wildlife refuge.
The Sheriff's Office says reports related to the ongoing federal and state investigations aren't included in the 360 pages released Thursday.
The documents include forensic reports, interview transcripts, photos from the shooting scene and other material.
Oregon State Police shot Finicum, an Arizona rancher, three times during a Jan. 26 traffic stop, which also led to the arrests of other leaders of the occupation.
A prosecutor ruled the shooting was justified, but FBI agents at the scene are under investigation for failing to disclose that they fired two shots during the confrontation. Neither hit Finicum.
