A Grand Forks police officer was forced to shoot a charging pit bull last Saturday after it bit a victim on the arm.
Police were dispatched Saturday at about 5:30 p.m. to the 700 block of S. 9th St. on a report of the bite.
As officers were investigating, they were met by a growling pit bull that started to charge at them. The dog chased another victim before stopping and charging at an officer.
The officer waited until the dog was within a short distance and fired a shot.
The dog died as a result of the gunshot and the owner was located and cited for dog at large. Police say the owner couldn't give rabies records for the dog. It's since been taken to a local veterinarian for testing.
