Deputy shoots, kills pit bull


A City Sheriff's Deputy shot and killed a pit bull that was threatening him. Sheriff Jim Murphy said the deputy was walking out of his own home in the 4700 block of Michigan Monday morning when two unleashed pi t bulls approached him in what he considered to be a threatening manner.
Murphy said the deputy shot one of them and the other dog ran back to its yard.
Neither dog had a record of proper shots and vaccinations.
The City Animal Control Department will take custody of the surviving dog.
He said lots of witnesses supported the story given by the deputy.
