DEKALB COUNTY, Ga.,None — A homeowner was held at gunpoint and his family pet was killed in a mix-up involving a DeKalb County police call.
"When I ran to the garage and saw my dog laying there dead and I'm looking at blood, I lost it," Bobbie Currie said.
Around 9 p.m., a DeKalb officer went to her home on Silva Court in response to a domestic dispute call with a possibly armed person. The officer said the family's German shepherd lunged at him, so he killed the dog. The recently rescued animal was chained in the garage when the shooting happened.
Currie's husband, Anthony, said the officer also pointed his gun at him and told him to put his hands up.
"I said, 'Why [did] you shoot my dog?' And he said, 'Well, I'll blow your brains out.' I said, 'Hold on a minute, you just killed my dog. Why you want to blow my brains out? My hands are up.' I said, 'I don't have no gun,'" Anthony Currie said.
