The case has been ongoing for a couple of months but now there has officially been an arrest in the shooting death of a horse in Chesterfield, Virginia. NBC 12 reported on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, that a man turned himself into police as he has been accused of shooting and killing a horse.
30-year-old Steven A. Dunn, of Greensboro, N.C., did indeed surrender to police on Thursday after it was announced that they had obtained warrants against him. The warrants were for maiming or killing of livestock and reckless handling of a firearm in relation to the incident.
The incident in question happened back in June in the 11900 block of Winterpock Road.
Henry Gleghorn was the owner of the horse, named Legend. Gleghorn discovered the horse shot to death with a shot at close range in the throat. The owner said the dead horse was discovered in his pasture.
Dunn has other issues on the table as well. The North Carolina man also faces charges for several counts of larceny.
Gleghorn has said that police advised him of several men in the area who were involved in a crime spree near the same time as the death of the horse. So far, Dunn is the only person that has been charged in the shooting of Legend.
