Officer shoots, kills dog that charged him in south Phoenix
PHOENIX - Police say an officer shot and killed a dog that charged him Monday morning while responding to a call in south Phoenix.
The incident happened when the Phoenix police officer was called out to Central and St. Catherine avenues for a theft call in the area just south of Southern Avenue, said Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump.
The pit bull reportedly was not on a leash and charged at the officer.
That’s when the officer shot and killed the dog.
ABC15 crews on scene saw police tape and a few officers surrounding the area.
Police said there’s no word if the dog’s owner will face any charges.
