APD sued over encrypted CDs in shooting

Albuquerque Police Department

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – An Albuquerque law firm is suing the Albuquerque Police Department over what it says is encrypted records from a police shooting probe.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that Kennedy Kennedy & Ives Law Practice recently filed the lawsuit in connection with records related to the shooting death of Armand Martin. Authorities say the 50-year-old Air Force veteran was shot by police during a standoff in May.

The law firm requested information in connection with the shooting investigation, but the firm said three of the CDs were password protected.

Albuquerque police spokeswoman Celina Espinoza said the department couldn’t comment on pending litigation or the allegation that it released password-protected records.

Albuquerque police and the U.S. Justice Department recently signed an agreement to overhaul the police force.
