Burglar shoots two dogs, kills one

Published: Sat, August 31, 2013 @ 12:06 a.m.


A South Side man said someone broke into his home in the 700 block of East Judson Avenue Thursday afternoon and shot two of dogs, killing one.

Police were called to the home just after 4 p.m. and when they arrived, the homeowner’s girlfriend said her boyfriend had taken the wounded dog to a veterinarian. Police followed a series of blood spots to the kitchen, where they found a dead terrier lying on the floor in a pool of blood, and two 9mm shell casings.

Taken was a large screen television and a 9mm handgun. The master bedroom was also ransacked, reports said

The homeowner came back while police were there and said he’d left at 1 p.m. When he returned about 2:55 p.m he saw the back door open and that’s when he found the dogs that were shot. A third 9mm shell casing was found in the hallway, reports said.

The homeowner told police he could not provide a serial number for the gun because it was a gift from a friend. The gun was listed as stolen, reports said.

There was no word on if the other dog survived. The detective investigating the case could not be reached for comment Friday.

A terrier,2 terrier's. What's with these people? Good thing the homeowner wasn't home,because he'd probably have seen his friend ripping him off,or if it wasn't a friend,he'd probably have gotten shot.

A real lowlife to shoot 2 dogs, especially Terriers, they pose no threat

Of all breeds, terriers are the most aggressive- especially the Pits. I wish they had managed to nail the burglar- torn his throat out- that would have taught him a lesson for life.

Doesnt matter what the breed of dog was (and FYI I know chihuhuas, beagles and dauchsunds way more aggressive then any terrier...even the pits)...what matters is someone broke into their home and killed them...I knew these dogs and neither of them were aggressive! In saying this...the scum bag dirt ball who did this was apprehended and BRUCE HASLEY is in jail where he belongs!!!
