SANTA FE, N.M. — Albuquerque police on Friday released more than 1,000 pages of documents and audio and video recordings from James Boyd’s death investigation.

Police have completed their investigation into the fatal officer-involved shooting and have turned over evidence to the Second Judicial District Attorney’s Office and the FBI, who will decide if criminal charges will be filed.

Detective Keith Sandy and Officer Dominique Perez shot and killed Boyd in the Albuquerque foothills area in March 2014. Sandy remains on administrative leave and Perez is on administrative assignment.

Albuquerque police said in a statement that they are not commenting on the evidence at the FBI’s request.

Video recordings of the shooting, released days after the incident, received national attention and sparked protests.

The documents released Friday include incident reports, supplemental reports, transcribed interviews with police officers and witnesses and other evidence.
