Youngstown, Ohio police shot a 42-lb dog 13, yes THIRTEEN, times while in pursuit of a juvenile suspect. The dog was in the basement when one of the suspects (the son of the residents but not living at the home at the time) ran down into the basement. Three officers pursued the juvenile and, when they opened the door, the 7-mos-old puppy came up the stairs.
While the dog was prostrate on the ground, he pumped another 5 bullets into the dog. And finally, he placed the gun inches from the top of the wounded, dying dog's head and blew her brains out.
