Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office announced Wednesday that it was delaying the release of grand-jury records in the controversial March police shooting of Bryo Taylor in Lewisville, before audio recordings were to be made public.
Cameron’s office on Tuesday filed a motion for a week-long release to protect the identities of witnesses, especially private citizens, as reported by the Louisville Courier-Journal. His office “seeks to reorganize the personal identifiers of any nominee, and to reconcile both the names and personal identifiers of any private citizen.”

She said the office requested additional time to “reduce personally identifiable information of witnesses, including addresses and phone numbers.”
Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Ann Bailey Smith is expected to rule on the motion later on Wednesday.
