They say the dog survived which is unbelievable in itself.
On Monday, NYPD officers in the East Village shot a dog protecting its owner.Although immediate reports claimed the dog (a pit bull named Star) had died from the gunshot wounds, it was later revealed she was in fact alive but in serious condition.
Since then, a video has surfaced capturing the horrific event. You can hear bystanders screaming to officers, “No! Why did you do that?”
According to police accounts, the dog had lunged at officers attempting to approach her owner who was visibly passed out and appeared to be suffering from a seizure.
