A city spokesperson reviwing body camera footage in the shooting death of Andre Hill says an officer's instruction for other officers to turn off their cameras after shots were fired is part of an investigation into Hill's death.

Department of Public Safety spokesperson Glen McEntyre says it's possible some officers were not required to have their cameras turned on. McEntyre says who did and didn't follow policy is part of the investigation. The comment was heard in new footage released Thursday. Hill was shot December 22 as he walked out of a garage holding a cell phone.
