A sheriff says he will not yet release squad car video of a police shooting that killed a man who live-streamed his chase by officers through two Minneapolis suburbs.

Hennepin County Sheriff David Hutchinson said in a statement Wednesday that releasing video of the shooting or other information before investigators have interviewed witnesses "may jeopardize the thoroughness of the investigation."
