D.C. man who shot dogs biting boy could face charges

City wants to know if gun he used was legal

D.C. police are investigating whether a man  will face criminal charges for shooting a pit bull that was attacking a child in  his neighborhood.

The incident unfolded Sunday afternoon, after three pit bulls attacked an  11-year-old boy as he rode his bicycle through the Brightwood neighborhood of  Northwest, according to a police report.

When the man, a neighbor, saw the boy being mauled by the dogs, he went  inside his home and got a gun. The man killed one of the dogs. The gunfire  attracted the attention of a police officer in the area near Eighth and Sheridan  streets, where the attack occurred. The officer responded and shot the other two  pit bulls as they continued to attack the boy.

The police report, which did not identify any of the people involved, said  the boy suffered severe lacerations. The  Washington Post, which first reported the details of the shooting, quoted  the boy’s uncle as saying the boy was also shot in the foot.

Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said  Wednesday that the entire case, including whether the man legally owned the gun  he used to kill the dog, is under investigation.

While public opinion might be supportive of the man’s actions, he could still  face significant charges depending on the outcome of the investigation, criminal  defense attorney Daniel Gross said.

“I’ve seen cases where people used weapons in defense of others, but the U.S.  attorney’s office is not always so understanding,” said Mr.  Gross, who represents many clients charged with firearms-related crimes in  the District. “There are certain defenses one could try, like self-defense or  defense of others, but that wouldn’t really go to whether they charge you.”

    Everything is upside down since they’ve gained more power. Wrong is right and right is wrong. Morals are sick and immorality is celebrated and advertised.

    Proof, to me, of their insanity.
