Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said as soon as the video was published, investigators digitally enhanced it, trying to find out who was holding their phone up to the screen that was playing the security footage. They found a reflection of a law enforcement uniform in the leaked video. 

Sharief said she could not say which agency it was, but handed the investigation to the FBI.
