Police officers say they were forced to open fire on a dog during a bust Friday in a west San Antonio neighborhood.
Law enforcement officials told KENS 5 they received a tip about possible stolen goods inside a duplex in the 7200 block of Timbercreek Dr., near W. Military Drive. Police obtained a warrant and showed up at the residence around 4:30 p.m.
A dog reportedly came out to protect the home and charged at the officers. That’s when, police said, they opened fire on the animal, killing the pit bull.
Investigators then entered the home and discovered drugs, cash and weapons inside, according to the San Antonio Police Department. A stolen vehicle was also recovered.
“There were also three children found inside the house,” said SAPD officer Douglas Greene. “Officers are going to be contacting CPS in regards to those three young children.”
