An independent investigation has determined a Cabarrus County sheriff's deputy was within the law when he shot and killed a pit bull in a Concord neighborhood last month. The incident sparked public outrage. The dog's owners are threatening a lawsuit.

The Cabarrus County Sheriff has already looked into the shooting incident and determined his deputy acted legally when he shot a pit bull known as "Bella."

But county commissioners were flooded with so many angry emails they ordered their own attorney, Rich Koch, to do an investigation. He says if an officer thinks a dog is dangerous, he can shoot.
