Marshall County

Dogs Running at Large

August 10, 2012

Marshall County - At approximately 1950 hrs on 08/09/2012, a deputy was dispatched to 207 West Chicago Street in Albion Iowa in reference to a complaint involving a violation of the City's ordinance which covers dogs running at large. 

Upon his arrival, Deputy Sheriff Demoris Dean observed an individual outside in the yard of the residence. The Deputy exited his patrol vehicle and began approaching the individual to discuss the complaint.

What transpired next is currently under investigation, however the broad facts that are known at this time involve 3 dogs approaching him and ultimately Deputy Dean drawing his weapon and shooting one of the animals. Agency policy involving the "Use of Force" warrants that an internal affairs review will be conducted. Deputy Dean remains on his normal assignment to the Patrol Division.

Until the full investigation is completed, any further discussion on this incident would be speculation at best. We wish to do all that we can to provide accurate information to the public and therefore will refrain from further comment until the investigation is completed. Sheriff Kamatchus stated, "I don't believe that making any comments on this incident without a full gathering of the facts, is fair to anyone involved. We don't want to make statements based on "best guesses" or "possibilities".
