An officer responding to a dispute call at a home arrived to find one or more German Shepherds loose. According to the owner of the dogs, she asked the officer to wait while she put her dogs away. He got out of the vehicle and one of the dogs apparently charged. He shot the dog in the head, killing him. A veterinarian, not an expert on bullet trajectory, feels the shooting was not in mid-charge.
