NYPD officer shoots dog

NYPD officers shot and killed a dog allegedly guarding its passed-out owner on 14th Street and Second Avenue Monday afternoon. Gothamist reports officers attempted to approach a man who was unconscious on the ground, when the dog lunged at police. A witness at the scene tweeted the owner was doped out. Famed chef Eddie Huang, whose restaurant BaoHaus is located at 238 East 14th Street, tweeted a photo of the incident with the message, Pigs shot a dog and let it die slow. Another witness tells Gothamist, There was a little boy closer to the scene with his dad, and he started bawling. It was just very shocking to see an animal killed—as the owner of a shelter animal myself, it was just so sad. This is the second time in three days that NYPD officers have opened fire in broad daylight near busy Manhattan intersection. Saturday, cops shot 12 bullets at a knife-wielding man in midtown. Darrius Kennedy would later die of his wounds.
