Animal Cruelty Officer Shot in Detroit

DETROIT - An animal cruelty officer, we're told, was shot Thursday by a Detroit Police officer, who was aiming at a loose pit bull.

This all started at a house on Fairport that is suspected of being a chop shop. In fact, Detroit Police were at the location investigating when they learned that three pit bulls were protecting the property. The Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society was called to safely remove the dogs.

We're told those officers were setting traps when one of the dogs got loose. A Detroit Police officer then fired off twelve rounds. One animal cruelty officer was struck in the back of the leg. Another bullet grazed his buttocks.

Another animal cruelty officer was also struck in the boot, but not injured.

"They need to go back to the range and learn how to shoot accurately," said witness Terrence King. "She was scared of the dog and panicked and shot somebody. She (was) just shooting recklessly."


The worker with the Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society was rushed to St. John Hospital. We're told he is expected to be okay.

As for the dogs, they're trying to retrieve one of the animals that is still in the house and believed to be very vicious. Another dog is on the loose. That dog may have been shot and is also believed to be dangerous. A third dog was caught and is being euthanized. It is very sick and has a lot of injuries from past dog fighting.

Ouch! This does not look good for the officer.
