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.
