Broomfield police shoot, kill dog that attacked two people after its owner collapsed – Broomfield Enterprise

 

The unidentified 83-year-old man was walking the dog, a Staffordshire Terrier, which police initially identified as a pit bull, in the 1900 block of Dover Street when he collapsed around 9:35 a.m. A woman who lives on Dover Street saw him collapse and called 911. She then ran out to help the man and was bitten on the forearm by the dog, said Broomfield Sgt. Steve Griebel.

When police arrived, a sergeant also tried to help the man and also was attacked by the dog, Griebel said. The dog bit the sergeant on the leg and would not let go, Griebel said, and the sergeant shot the dog.

The dog let go of the man’s leg and briefly ran away before launching another attack on the sergeant. He then fired at the dog again, killing it, Griebel said.

The sergeant and woman who were bitten were taken to a nearby hospital, and the man who collapsed in the street was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The names of all three have not yet been released and their conditions are not known at this time.
