Bristol Police: Officer Shoots Attacking Dog

Bristol Police

On Thursday, December 21, 2017 around 1:00 pm two Bristol Patrol Officers attempted to serve an arrest warrant at 476 Broad Street.

While speaking to a resident of the apartment, the resident’s dog ran out from behind the home.

The dog approached the officers while they were on the front porch.

The dog began to growl and bark at the officers. One of the officers attempted to put a chair that was on the porch between himself and the dog.

However, the dog was able to get around the chair and bite the officer on his left arm. The officer was able to get the dog to release his arm.

The dog then turned back at the officer, as though it was going to attack the officer again. The officer feared for his safety and drew his gun.

The officer discharged his fireman one time at the dog. The dog was struck and ran away from the officers.

The Bristol PD’s Animal Control Officer was called to the scene and transported the dog to an emergency veterinarian.

The dog was described as a large Bullmastiff- Pitbull cross.

The officer was treated at the scene for a minor injury to his left forearm. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bristol PD’s Patrol Division, with the assistance of the Identification Division.

The subject of the warrant was not located at the address.
