Records: Officer wasn’t fired for going to Mukilteo shooting
EVERETT, Wash. -- Newly disclosed records suggest an officer with a tiny suburban police department was not, in fact, fired for responding to a mass shooting at a house party in nearby Mukilteo. The Daily Herald newspaper reports that it obtained the personnel file of Brier police officer Dan Anderson under a public records request. It shows that the department had concerns about his performance, driving ability and legal knowledge — and that it decided to fire him two weeks before the July 30 shooting, which left three teens dead.
