What to do with footage of fatal accident

I’m not sure if this is the right sub but let me know if there’s a better place for this.

Over the weekend there was a fatal car accident at the intersection where I live. A motorcycle was involved and unfortunately passed away. I have the footage captured on my home security system and it is very clear what happened. I already shared a copy with the investigating officers because they kind of pushed their way into my living room when I opened the door and I didn’t have much time to think about it. Since then I’ve had multiple other people stop by claiming to be extended family and ask for a copy. I don’t want to seem like a dick but I don’t really want to share the footage with random people if it will come back to bite me in some way. I am happy to share the footage with the immediate family of the biker but I also don’t want to bother them during this sensitive time.

What is normal in this situation and is there ever any harm in sharing this kind of video footage? I understand it may be helpful for closure but I don’t want to screw myself in some way.
