Johnson said that under department policy, she is to receive a report on the status of the internal investigation within seven days of the incident and the investigation is to be completed within 30 days.

Johnson was not specific but said there were several officers placed on administrative leave following the incident according to procedure in such cases, some of whom are back at work.

“Not all of them are back on duty. There were several people placed on administrative leave,” she said.

Hardin’s condition was improved from last week. He underwent extensive surgery Wednesday and was previously listed in critical condition.
