La Marque police officer shoot dog playing with people, hits woman

A La Marque police officer showed poor judgment when she shot at a dog amidst a crowd of people. The officer believed the dog was attacking people. In lieu of asking witnesses about the situation and judging whether fatal actions were required, she opened fire.

One of the bullets ricocheted and hit a woman in the collarbone, leaving bullet fraagments permanently embedded in her body. She is okay.

Some articles mentioned the dog was shot as well but is expected to survive.
