An Oregon sheriff's office has released hundreds of pages of documents from its investigation into the shooting death of a key figure in the takeover of a national wildlife refuge.

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says reports related to the ongoing federal and state investigations aren't included in the 360 pages released Thursday.

The documents include forensic reports, interview transcripts, photos from the shooting scene and other material.

Oregon State Police shot Arizona rancher Robert "LaVoy" Finicum three times during a Jan. 26 traffic stop, which also led to the arrests of other leaders of the occupation.

A prosecutor ruled the shooting was justified, but FBI agents at the scene are under investigation for failing to disclose that they fired two shots during the confrontation. Neither hit Finicum.
