Omaha, NE - Officers trying to find a suspect in a sexual assault were thwarted for a while by a stubborn pit bull.
Police officers executing a no-knock search warrant near 33rd and Forest Lawn Avenue noticed a garage door partially open. As police approached, the suspect reportedly opened the door suddenly and a pit bull ran out, charging an officer. Police reports say he attacked "in a vicious manner, growling, showing teeth." The officer shot the dog in the head, causing him to stagger and collapse.
As officers arrested the suspect and tried to enter the house, the pit bull "raised up" and charged the police again. A second officer fired two shots, hitting the dog in his upper back and right rib area. The dog "fell slightly" but then charged the officers a third time.
The suspect--Aaron Sheperd--is in jail on a $5 million bond for sexually assaulting and viciously beating a young woman last week.
