Dog shot during attempted robbery in Warren

Staff report


A burglar shot a woman’s English bulldog, causing a grazing wound to the dog’s head, when the dog attacked the burglar.

Two men came through the front door of the home on Brier Street Southeast at 9:28 p.m. Thursday. One of them asked the woman and her son, “Where’s the money?” The dog then tried to attack one of the burglars.

The burglar fired two shots at the dog, hitting it once.

The man then grabbed the woman and took her toward the back of the residence, again demanding money. After she told the man she didn’t have any, the suspects fled out the front door empty-handed.

The woman took the dog to a veterinarian.
