New Braunfels Police officers shot and killed a dog while confronting a woman they say was trespassing on private property Friday evening.
The incident started just before 7:30 p.m. when the officers found the 40-year-old woman reportedly trespassing on the 1800 block of South Seguin Street, according to reports. Police say the officers approached the woman, but were confronted with her unrestrained and “aggressive” dog, believed to be a pit bull mix. When the dog charged, police said the officers were forced to fire at it with their service weapons.
Police said the dog died at the scene and the woman may face charges stemming to the reportedly unrestrained dog and alleged trespassing.
Other details, including the identity of the woman and the officers involved, weren’t immediately available Saturday afternoon.
