|Deputy Discharges Weapon during Dog Attack|
At approximately 2:10 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 2019, after serving a civil citation and on his way back to his vehicle, a Precinct 7 Deputy encountered an aggressive dog. Initially, the deputy was able to fight the dog off and the dog fled. However, moments later, while trying to get to his vehicle the animal caught the officer off guard by attacking him from behind.
The owner of the animal was on the premises and tried to gain control of the large-sized pit bull and another dog that he used to guard his business. He was successful in restraining one of the animals but the pit bull ignored his command. The dog viciously attacked the deputy. While trying to fight the dog off, the deputy radioed Precinct 7 Dispatch for assistance. In fear of his life, the deputy drew his service weapon and fired one time fatally injuring the pit bull before help could arrive.
Upon arrival, the deputy's supervisor observed that the officer had deep lacerations on his left leg that was bleeding profusely. He also had other visible scrapes and bruises sustained while attempting to get away from the animal. The deputy was transported to Memorial Herman Hospital by EMS for treatment of his injuries and was released later that evening in stable condition. Animal Control took possession of the dog to be examined by a veterinarian. The supervisor noted that there was a "No Trespassing" sign posted at the business but not a "Guard Dog on Duty" sign.
The Harris County District Attorney's Office was called regarding this case. The deputy's actions and handling of the incident are currently under review by the Harris County Precinct 7 Internal Affairs Division. For precautionary measures, in the event of future dealings with aggressive animals, all Precinct 7 deputies will attend a mandatory refresher course on K-9 encounters. The first day of training started on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.
