Forest City Police Officer Sean Brooks, who also lives on Valley View Drive, was placed on paid suspension from his duties regarding shooting the neighbor’s dog while off-duty.
Brooks has been an officer with the Forest City Police Department since January 2013.
Today he awaits news from a mid-week meeting with Forest City Police Chief Jay Jackson, District Attorney Brad Greenway and detectives regarding the shooting and any charges.
According to Jackson, Brooks admitted shooting the six-year-old boxer and said it was “in self-defense of his family and wife.”
However, there was no police incident report of any dog being aggressive and no police report was filed of shooting an animal inside city limits, which is unlawful.
Just one example of the 20 dogs killed daily by police officers in the United States of America.
