Shooting of Dog in E. Kennewick Will Not Be Investigated
After the whirlwind settles down, a story comes to a close. Officers were making an arrest of a suspected gang member last week in East Kennewick. The suspect's pitbull, Jasmine, got out of the house and followed the officers and suspect. Another officer, from behind a fence, shot the dog once.
According to reports used in the investigation, the dog ran or charged after the officers at the scene.
She died shortly after.
While calling the incident a "tragedy", Sheriff Jerry Hatcher says there will be no investigation.
