Dog Attack Officers

April 25, 2008

Los Angeles: A dog was shot on April 9, 2008, at 8:15 p.m., when LAPD officers from the 77th Street Area responded to a radio call in the 5500 block of South Western Avenue because of loud noises and a possible traffic collision.

At the scene, as officers began their investigation, a dog charged Officer Miguel Gutierrez, who has 5.5 years with the Department. Gutierrez was forced to shoot the animal, resulting in its death. There were no arrests during the incident.
