-- An officer accidentally shot his partner while attempting to fight off two pit bulls, witnesses told Local 4.
Detroit police responded to a vicious dog call in the 8800 block of Trinity at about 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Evelyn Parker, 77, showed Local 4 a bite wound she received from one of the dogs.
"They came from the front of my car and the white one ran behind me and bit me and the brown one was in front of me and I was trying to keep him away with my cane," Parker said.
Anita Briantley, who lives in the neighborhood, said when police arrived at the scene, one of the dogs attacked an officer.
"I seen the brown dog charge the officer and the officer was shooting him," Briantley said.
Another neighbor, Darlene Smith, explained how the officer apparently shot his partner.
"They bit the officer on the hand. He went down because the dog lunged at him," Smith said. "The brown one ? my neighbor next door said it got (the officer) on the back of his leg as he went down and he was firing his gun and somehow he shot the other officer."
The gunshot struck the officer's partner in the knee. The injured officer was being treated, Local 4 reported.
The two pit bulls escaped and remain at large.

All they needed was mace and to club the dogs, no need for the guns to be used in a careless manner in a subdivision....

Events like these are why the more aggressive dogs are not allowed to be owned by anyone who lives in the city limits of alot of towns. Not to mention higher homeowner insurance for anyone who does keep these dogs. The owners need to take better care of the dogs and not allow them to run free. This kind of thing only hurts those of us who wish to keep the more aggressive dogs around for home protection. It is a shame to see this kind of thing, but kinda funny that the police did not follow procedure and have animal control handle it.

It is a shame to see these things happen, gives a bad name to Pits, but sometimes funny to see jackass cops f-up! As far as not having thse types of dogs in the city limits as erndog wrote in the above post, a city like Detroit is exactly the kind of city where a person would need such a dog!
