The officer shot the dog Tuesday following a report of a man being pinned by his neighbor’s German shepherd. The man told dispatchers that the dog got out of its kennel.
Police say the dog charged at officers. One officer fired his weapon.
The dog was shot in the head. The Nebraska Humane Society says the dog was later euthanized.
The station reports the dog’s owner was cited for improper restraint of a dog and dog menacing behavior.
