CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire attorney general's office is poised to release videos and audio of police shooting to death a man who lunged at them with a knife.
Officials say the videos will be released Friday to media outlets that filed a right-to-know request.
The police body-camera videos, some of which have been edited to remove some of the more graphic images, show police shooting to death 42-year-old Hagan Esty-Lennon in Bath on July 6, after officials say he rushed at them with a knife. The attorney general's office deemed the use of deadly force was justified.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court on Thursday denied efforts by Esty-Lennon's ex-wife — the mother of his two children — to postpone release of the videos.
Her lawyer says Lisa Esty-Lennon was "devastated" by the ruling.
