The incident began innocently enough, with two young teenagers throwing snowballs and rocks at a house. When police arrived, the teens fled on foot, prompting police to chase them. Once the teens had returned to their home, that's when the night took a dark turn.
The teens and an unnamed owner released a pit bull. The dog's owners said repeatedly to attack the officers. The dog ending up biting an officer, the owner, and an unnamed third person. The officer and the unnamed third person were treated for minor injuries. The dog's owner required a trip to the hospital.
The police expelled 13 rounds to stop the attack, killing the dog. Police treated the shooting of the dog like any other crime scene, marking it off with yellow tape and placing markers where the rounds landed.
The two teens originally caught throwing snowballs were arrested for destruction of property. The dog's owner who ordered the attack was also arrested.
