Coon Rapids police kill attacking pit bull

By Sarah Horner, Pioneer Press

A detective with the Coon Rapids police department shot and killed a pit bull Tuesday after the dog allegedly bit him in the knee.
The detective, who works for the drug task force, was conducting a search warrant in the 9700 block of Foley Boulevard when the animal attacked him, according to Shelley Peetz, Anoka County 911 dispatch supervisor. The officer then shot and killed the dog.
The detective, whose name has not been released, received medical treatment and was released.
The dog's owner was cooperative with police and provided paperwork about the dog's shots, Peetz said.
An investigation is ongoing.
