Vicious animal complaint reported by dog walker; pit bull shot

Vicious Animal Complaint – On Sunday, October 18 at 4:57PM, officers responded to the 13400 block of Photo Dr in Woodbridge (22193) to investigate a vicious animal.

The investigation revealed that the caller was walking his mixed-breed dog along Photo Dr when a pit bull terrier ran up behind him and began attacking his dog. At that point, the caller pulled out a handgun and fired one round towards the attacking dog, striking it in the back. The attacking dog returned to a nearby residence where it remained until police arrived.

The attacking dog was transported to a local animal hospital where it later died. The other dog was not severely injured. No other injuries or property damage were reported.

Following consultation with the Commonwealth Attorney, no charges will be filed regarding the shooting.
