Nampa Police Department completes investigation of Filer dog shooting

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Mar 6, 2014

The future of a Filer police officer now lies in the hands of the city council.

Council members are currently reviewing Officer Tarek Hassani's actions after he shot and killed a black lab last month.
 
Officer Hassani says the dog was acting aggressively and he had no choice but to shoot.
 
The Nampa Police Department spent weeks reviewing dashcam video and documents related to the incident.
 
Filer Police Chief Tim Reeves says the council could make a decision by next week.
