ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Anchorage police officer involved in a deadly shooting in Mountain View has been cleared.
“No criminal charges against the officer will be filed.” Chief Mark Mew said.
At a Wednesday afternoon news conference, police released video, photos, a map and a transcript of the 911 police dispatch leading up to the moment of the shooting back on June 9th.
That night three 9-11 phone calls had come in telling dispatchers that 26-year-old Shane Tasi was behaving violently. Photos inside the Tasi home show a fridge and couch tossed on the floor. One 9-11 caller told a dispatcher there was blood everywhere and that it sounded like someone was ‘getting their butt beaten.’ Police later told reporters there wasn’t as much blood Inside the home as they anticipated after listening to those callers.
Police say Tasi had been drinking and they suspect he may have taken drugs, although the toxicology results aren’t back yet.
