When Evansville, Indiana police were flagged down by a young person claiming to be frightened by two dogs loose in the neighborhood, the scene that unfolded ended with one dog dead after reportedly charging the officer who opened fire.
In the officer’s body cam video, the dog can be seen standing off in the distance before the officer whistles to him to get his attention. Then, as the dog begins barking and running toward the officer, he fires his gun, continuing to fire after the dog turns and runs away in the opposite direction.
