SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A San Diego police officer shot and wounded a dog in Pacific Beach overnight after the canine, who had just bitten another officer, charged him, according to police.
Officers were called to break up a fight between roommates at an apartment complex around 1:00 a.m. in the 2100 block of Felspar Street.
One of them had a dog that lunged at the police officers.
"One officer was bit on the leg with just a minor injury. The dog then went for the other officer. The officer discharged his firearm to protect himself and his partner from the dog. The dog was hit once in the nose. The dog will survive," said Lt. Mark Bennett with the San Diego Police Department.
