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, a spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday.

The department also won’t release 911 recordings from the incident earlier this month, spokeswoman Sarah Yoro said.
