Hello Ms. Lucero,
On January 3, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:
Suspect: Mylin Bill
Date of Incident: December 11, 2017 (Shooting at 1st and Central – one victim sent to hospital)
Date of Arrest: December 15, 2017 (SWAT call out)
IPRA: All police lapel of arrest … and all police lapel scene of shooting .
IPRA: Surveillance Video of the shooting from any of the surrounding businesses at 1st and Central
IPRA all police reports relating to both incidents
These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). We cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.
These records will no longer be exempt in their entirety when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
