Police responding to a disturbance in Lake City Sunday morning shot and wounded a pit bull, according to Police. The dog was taken to a local veterinary hospital. It’s condition is unknown.
Police received a call about an intoxicated man at God’s Little Acre, a day center for homeless people in the 12000 block of 33rd Avenue Northeast. While several officers were dealing with the uncooperative man, a pit bull charged two officers. One officer shot the dog twice, in the chest and shoulder.
The dog ran off but was contained nearby until Seattle Animal Control arrived. The two officers were not wounded. The intoxicated man was taken into custody and taken to detox, according to police spokeswoman Renee Witt.
