WASHINGTON (AP) — The D.C. police department is refusing to release a copy of a 911 call made after a shooting at the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group.

The Associated Press had requested a copy of the recording under the District of Columbia’s open records law. But the department rejected that request, saying the call is part of an ongoing FBI investigation and that it lacks the technology to redact sensitive portions of the call. The mayor’s office has held that 911 calls are not considered public records.

Floyd Lee Corkins II is charged in federal court with the Aug. 15 shooting of a security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters.

Authorities say Corkins told the guard he didn’t like the organization’s policies before opening fire. The guard survived.
