Thompson says no humans, houses or other property were struck by the discharged rounds. So far there has been no report of any dogs being struck by bullets in this incident.

Thompson says the investigation of this shooting continues and once completed the facts will be submitted to the State’s Attorney’s Office to determine if any charges will be filed.

    Yes it is too bad he did not have a better aim. I too love dogs but people have to control them also. The way our States Attorney is he will most likely flub this one too.

    Dogs will do what dogs do. Dont blame the wrong end of the leash.
    As always the animals are blamed because the owners are irrresponsible and do not keep them contained so they are not a threat to anyone.
