MEDINA, Ohio -- Police are investigating after an officer shot and killed a dog Tuesday.
Police said the officer was investigating a loud music complaint this weekend when a dog she thought was a pit bull charged at her.
Witnesses said the officer shot the dog three times.
The owner said the dog was a boxer and a new mother.
"We're still investigating whether the officer followed all of the procedures but that officer was required to make a split-second decision," said Dennis Hanwell of the Medina City Police. "That dog was showing aggressive tendencies as it approached the officer."
A Medina safety panel is reviewing the incident.
RIP mama Boxer.
