A Lake Forest woman wounded a neighborhood dog with a pistol after it repeatedly bit her 6-year-old daughter on her face and body.
Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino says the girl was playing with her younger sister in the family's driveway on Wednesday when the dog attacked.
Jennifer Cooper, who was on the porch, took one shot at the brown-and-white boxer with a Glock pistol after it chased after her as she hustled her children indoors. The girl's 14-year-old brother punched the dog and Cooper tried to kick it before going for the gun.
The girl was treated at the scene by paramedics.
The dog was taken to a veterinarian for its wounds.
The dog does not have an ID tag and authorities are trying to identify its owner.
