Killeen News Now – The Killeen Police Department is refusing to release body-cam footage in the officer involved shooting death of martial artist and instructor Ralph Sebexen.

Devin Hill, an officer with the Killeen Police Department, shot 27-year-old Ralph Sebexen, a Killeen man, outside a convenience store on Fort Hood Street on April 5. Sebexen spent three weeks on life support before passing away on April 26.

On May 9, the office of the City Attorney for the City of Killeen responded to that request.

The City Attorney’s office intends to withhold the requested information pending a ruling from the Office of the Texas Attorney General.

“The City of Killeen seeks to withhold the information from public disclosure as it considers it to be protected by one or more of the exceptions (to the Texas Public Information Act) found within sections 552.101 through 552.154 of the Texas Government Code,”

City Attorney Traci Briggs

The shooting of Sebexen is still under investigation by the Texas Rangers. The findings of that investigation will determine whether the shooting goes before a grand jury.

“Ralph Sebexen is still an active investigation and no further details are available at this time,”

Sgt. Bryan Washko,
Public information officer for the Texas Department of Public Safety
