Separately, the police department is considering job action against Hastings for allegedly not telling the truth about circumstances of the shooting. Hastings has been placed on administrative leave.

Fox 16 reports:

A department spokesman says Josh Hastings has not been fired, however, his firing is likely to come soon.

Hastings will have the opportunity to appeal.
