JAMESTOWN – A man who claims his dog was shot by Jamestown Police Officers Wednesday during a warrant check at 222 Windsor St., said he’s considering legal action.
“The dog was running around the house and the cop just automatically got scared and shot him twice,” said Ray Finch.
Finch indicated that the dog, a pitbull Mastiff mix, ran around the house and surprised the officer.
“It’s messed up because the person they were looking for, didn’t even live here,” said Finch.
The dog later was put down following the incident.
Jamestown Police did not immediately return a message seeking comment for this story.
