Johnson described Hardin, who is from Havelock, as a well-trained and disciplined officer.

Katie Hansen is a reporter for the Jacksonville Daily News.

Family members said Thursday doctors put Harden in a medically induced coma after performing surgery to repair damages to a lung from the shooting.

Johnson said Friday the State Bureau of Investigation is continuing to investigate the accident and the MCPD is also conducting an internal investigation. Johnson believes at least one of the investigations will conclude in seven to 10 days.
