Colorado Springs police fatally shoot "charging" pit bull

By Kieran Nicholson, The Denver Post

A pit bull was fatally shot in Colorado Springs when the dog attacked officers, police said.
The incident happened at about 1:15 p.m. Monday at 1330 Potter Drive, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department crime blotter.
Police were called to an apartment building on a domestic violence complaint. A maintenance man at the building had intervened in the alleged violence, between a man and a woman, when he was attacked by two pit bulls. When police arrived the two pit bulls "charged" officers, the blotter said.
Officers fired at the dogs, killing one and forcing the other into an apartment where it was kept at bay until animal control took it away.
The man involved in the domestic violence complaint, identified as Robert Harris, was arrested on suspicion of assault. Harris was also wanted on two outstanding warrants, police said.
