Before allowing the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations report into the police shooting of Jocques Clemmons to go public, Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle is asking for more information and more time to consider, the Tennessean reports. Specifically, Lyle requested Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk to file an amended request with an affidavit of concrete facts showing why the report should be released. Funk and TBI Director Mark Gwyn previously filed a petition requesting the report be made public. Lyle’s order sets a May 22 hearing for the purpose of deciding whether the report should be released.
