Pit bull shot after aggressively approaching officers

At approximately 10:37pm, on Friday, Feb. 18, officers from the Long Beach Police Department responded to a call that shots had been fired in the 2400 block of Pasadena Avenue. Upon arrival, officers attempted to make contact with three male subjects in a yard off of an alley in the area. The subjects fled into a residence, and, as officers moved toward the property, an adult pit bull approached them in an aggressive manner, resulting in an officer-involved-shooting.
The dog was transported to a veterinary hospital for treatment for a gunshot wound and is in stable condition.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Long Beach Police Department Homicide Detectives Malcolm Evans or Todd Johnson at (562) 570-7244.
