Family of killed dog suing police

In May, a Kerman police officer shot and killed a family pet while investigating a "stolen skateboard" complaint (skateboard not stolen, it turns out). The dog was shot in the middle of a house with several family members present. The dog did growl at the officer but did not bite before being shot twice.

The family is now suing the officer and police department for what they feel was police misconduct, especially considering no charges were filed regarding the alleged stolen property.
