Woman Injured by Officer’s Rounds Fired at Charging Pit Bull

A 46-year-old Milwaukee woman was injured when a Milwaukee Police officer fired rounds at a charging pit bull dog during a shots fired investigation on Milwaukee’s South Side. The incident happened at about 5:15 a.m. on April 1 in an alley in the 2400 block of S. 9th Place after officers were dispatched to the report of shots fired. During the investigation, one officer fired rounds at a pit bull dog charging at him from a yard. The pit bull was injured as a result of the officer’s actions, along with the dog’s 46-year-old owner who was struck in the leg by what is believed to be a ricocheting round. The woman was treated at the scene by medical personnel and released, and has since sought follow-up medical treatment at a local hospital. Shell casings believed to be from the shots fired call were found in the alley. Our investigation continues.
