Dog shot, killed by D.C. officer
A D.C. police officer shot and killed a dog that attacked him while serving a search warrant at a Northwest Washington home Tuesday night, police said.
Police say the dog – described as pit bull-like – bit the officer during the incident about 9:40 p.m. in the 1300 block of 5th Street NW, a few blocks from the Mount Vernon Square Metro station.
The officer then shot the dog, which ultimately died, said Lt. Nick Bruel, a police spokesman.
The officer’s condition was not immediately known.
