Washington Police and FBI agents gather outside the Family Research Council in Washington, Wednesday, after security guard at the lobbying group was been shot in the arm.
The D.C. police department is refusing to release a copy of a 911 call made after a shooting at the Chinatown headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobbying group
The Associated Press had requested a copy of the recording under the District of Columbia's open records law, but the department rejected that request, saying the call is part of an ongoing FBI investigation and that it lacks the technology to redact sensitive portions of the call. The mayor's office has held that 911 calls are not considered public records.
Floyd Lee Corkins II is charged in federal court with the August 15 shooting of a security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters.
Authorities say Corkins told the guard he didn't like the organization's policies before opening fire. The guard survived.
