COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The city of Coeur d'Alene will pay a man $80,000 after a police officer shot his dog.

Officer David Kelley shot the black lab named Arfee in July 2014, when he said he was afraid the dog was going to bite him in the face after lunging at him through the partially open window of a parked van.

The shooting drew criticism nationwide and also sparked changes inside the police department when it comes to using force on animals.

Originally, the dog's owner, Craig Jones, was seeking $350,000 in damages. His attorney and the city have been in settlement talks for the past couple of months. 

The settlement was approved Tuesday in a unanimous vote by the City Council.
