A DC police officer shot a leashed dog that was enclosed inside of a fence, and then came back and shot it twice more while the dogs owner had it cradled in her lap. The dog died.
6th Distric Commander Robert Contee says it was justified, but the woman who was holding her dying dog when the cop shot it again said "He could of easily shot me. He could of shot the people over there. He could of shot innocent bystanders."
How the dog posed a threat while leashed and enclosed is not known, but shooting it while the owner is holding it is just reckless. Why did he come back to finish it off?
