Dog's Family Says Animal Wasn't Charging At Officers
A Detroit family and police are at odds over what really happened that led to the shooting a pit bull on Sunday afternoon.
Detroit police said they were dropping someone off to a home on Kentucky Street when the pit bull came at them and was shot in the officer's defense.
The dog was hit once in the neck and died.
The dog's owners said the 5-year-old Pit bull, named Bruno, didn't have a history of aggression and was just barking.
Porsha Jeraigan said she was trying to bring the dog inside when it was shot.
"To me, he just wanted to shoot the dog. He didn't say, 'Get your dog,' or nothing," Jeraigan said. "He just pulled out the gun so fast."
The dog's body was taken by police.
