A St. Bernard was shot and killed by Lubbock police. The dog's owner had accidentally kicked down a gate in his pursuit of armed invaders who had attempted to steal his wallet. Instead of, you know, just giving him the wallet, the guy started chasing the men with guns. Unfortunately, his dog was able to get out so that when police arrived, they were faced with a very large dog charging/running toward them.
THe officer shot the dog in the head, killing him. He was shot in front of the victim's child and wife.
