Pit bull shot, killed by police

Cincinnati police shot and killed a pit bull Sunday night after it lunged at them. It happened just after 7 p.m. in the 2500 block of Montana Avenue in Westwood.

The dog was running loose in the street, police said. The officer was attempting to corral the animal when it charged at him, said Lt. Lisa Davis. The officer struck the dog twice with a stun gun, but it didn’t take effect, Davis said. The dog then lunged at the officer’s leg so the officer shot it.

The owner, who lives nearby, was charged with failure to confine his dog. The officer was not injured.
