Fort Worth police shot two dogs that charged at them early Wednesday as they investigated a possible crime theft ring. One dog was killed and the other wounded, a police spokesman said.
Police were called about midnight to the home in the 5000 block of Fitzhugh Avenue on reports of a person outside with a gun.
According to a police incident report, the caller said an ex-roommate with a gun approached the house, and was yelling and making threats to have the caller come outside.
“During the process of investigating the person with a weapon call, officers recovered three stolen vehicles and multiple stolen property,” said Officer Jimmy Pollozani.
Officers were advised to retreat and guard the premises while a search warrant was obtained, Pollozani said.
Two agressive dogs charged at police, who shot them. “ No officers or civilians were injured or shot at,” Pollozani said.
