State police troopers were serving a warrant.
As they got near the house, they were approached by a dog. Either the dog was let out of the house or he normally hung out on the porch. Regardless, he approached and growled at an officer who shot the dog twice. Lawrence police and animal control were called to safely transport the dog to a vet hospital where he is expected to survive.
The man they had come to arrest, however, was already sitting in jail.
