ASHEBORO, N.C. — A North Carolina judge has refused to release the police video of a shooting that killed a University of North Carolina student.

Superior Court Judge Brad Long ruled Monday that releasing the video would jeopardize a possible criminal investigation into the shooting.

Several media outlets including The Associated Press asked the judge to release the video from dashboard cameras on two Archdale police cruisers. The cameras captured the Aug. 23 traffic stop as 21-year-old Courtland Smith was stopped on Interstate 85 in Randolph County.

Smith had called 911 while on the road, saying he was trying to kill himself, had been drinking and was carrying a gun.

Police radio traffic indicates Smith was shot 35 seconds after his car was stopped.
