PRESS RELEASE Officer Shoots Charging Aggressive Dog November 8, 2017 2:00 PM On the morning of 11/08/17, YCOM began receiving complaints of two adult black lab dogs running loose and causing a traffic hazard on NE Lafayette Avenue. The dogs were reportedly running within the traffic lanes and at least one of the initial callers reported they had attempted to catch the dogs but were unsuccessful. A third caller observed the dogs on NE 19th Street and attempted to contact and contain them as well. When this citizen attempted to contact the dogs, one of the dogs exhibited aggressive behavior towards him, causing him to fear for his safety. This citizen got into his vehicle and drove a block and called 911 to report the dog’s aggressive behavior. While seated in his vehicle, one of the dogs approached his parked vehicle, putting its front legs on the side of the vehicle while continuing to exhibit aggressive behavior. Two officers arrived in the area and contacted this citizen and located the two dogs. The officers attempted to contact and contain the two dogs by enticing them with dog treats, but were not successful. The dogs ran out of sight and as the officers were looking for them, they encountered a member of the postal service making deliveries in the area. The postal worker also reported the two dogs and their aggressive behavior. The postal worker was concerned with her safety to the point that she had her defensive dog spray in her hand. The dogs were located again by officers and additional attempts to entice the dogs into containment were made, but were unsuccessful. The dogs continued to roam the area and appeared to show interest in a house in the 700 block of NE 19th Street. When a lone officer exited his vehicle at this location, both dogs aggressively charged towards him as he stood in the street. With the dogs sudden aggressive behavior towards this officer, and with minimal time to react to a simultaneous attack from the two dogs, the officer was forced to fire his sidearm at the closest aggressing dog. The fired rounds struck and killed the lead aggressing dog and the second dog immediately retreated. A resident of the house the dogs had shown interest in soon appeared at the front door. The second dog retreated inside the residence and it was learned that the dogs did belong at the residence. The dog owners were unaware that the dogs were missing and were uncertain how the dogs had escaped the house or yard. No further information will be available surrounding this incident.
