The Iowa Public Information Board, an independent agency charged with enforcing the state's open records and open meetings law, is suing the Burlington Police Department and other agencies to force the release of all video showing Officer Jesse Hill shooting and killing Autumn Steele. Hill was responding to a domestic disturbance at Steel's home and he says her dog attacked him. He shot at the dog but missed it and hit Steele instead.
