Miami Beach police must release an autopsy report, 911 and radio dispatch calls and other recordings from the South Beach police shooting that killed a motorist and wounded three bystanders during the 2011 Memorial Day weekend, a judge ruled Wednesday.

But the majority of the evidence — including the lead detective's draft report detailing how 12 police officers unleashed more than 100 rounds on busy Collins Avenue — will remain secret as allowed by state law as authorities finish their criminal investigation, the judge ruled.
