    the incident report and at least some of the investigative reports could be released because the investigation of that matter is closed. The investigation of the shooting is open, and therefore a lot can be withheld.

    It might be helpful to distinguish between "leaked" and "released" in the future. I don't know where the marijuana or orbital fracture stuff came from, but I don't think it was "released" in the sense of "disclosed to the press by the police." I'm not even sure it was "leaked" -- that implies that there's evidence of it but it's not supposed to be released -- so much as "created out of whole cloth to poison the well and test out defense stories."
