OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Ogden police say a dog was shot dead after it charged at officers during a burglary call.
Ogden Police Deputy Director John Harvey says the encounter happened while officers were responding to the 500 block of 7th Street about 11:30 p.m. Friday.
Harvey says a woman who'd called police to report hearing suspicious noises was standing outside the home with a German shepherd mix dog.
Harvey says the dog went into attack mode, and an officer fired two shots when it got within 10 feet of them.
Harvey says the dog's owners haven't filed a formal complaint with police, but the incident will be reviewed internally.
It's the second time Ogden police have shot a dog this month. Another one was killed March 3.
