Cop shoots dog, Md. teen hit
Baltimore police say a 14-year-old boy was shot in the leg when an officer fired at a dog attacking a group of youths.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi that officers came across a group of youths being attacked by a pit bull around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fenwick and East 28th streets.
Guglielmi says one officer shot the dog, but the teen was hit when the bullet ricocheted or went through the dog. He says the teen, who was talking and coherent at the scene, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital. The dog died.
Police say witnesses told them kids in the neighborhood were antagonizing the dog and the dog broke free.
The names of the officers involved have not been released.
