A woman called police when her live-in boyfriend and a relative engaged in a heated argument. When police arrived, three officers entered the home. At some point, one of the dog's got out of his crate and approached officers (walked up or charged, depending on who you ask). According to the dog's owner, the dog stopped and, at that point, was shot a total of eight times. Two of the officers shot once, while a third officer shot the dog six times.
Several of the bullets embedded themselves into the floor, leaving pockmarks. The shooting occurred directly in front of the dog's owner with several other people present.
