A Fort Worth couple says an officer shot and killed their dog on their front porch after he showed up at their home on a copper-theft call, according to CW33.
Cindy and Mark Boling, who live at 4717 Norma St., said their dogs were with them in the front yard as they were unloading their truck after a shopping trip.
CW33 says the officer responded to the wrong address, but a police spokesman told the station that he was assisting on the copper-theft call and was looking for suspects.
The Bolings told the station that their border collie mix, Lillie, was trying to greet the officer when he shot her in the back.
Officer Daniel Segura of the Fort Worth Police Department said two dogs charged at the officer, who finally shot one after they continued to behave aggressively, the station reported.
