Family's pet dog fatally shot by off-duty police officer

An off-duty officer shot and killed a neighbor's dog after he said his family was attacked. The owners of that dog are telling a different story, and they are calling for that officer to face charges.

"I just don't see how you can justify walking up to an animal and shooting it in the neck at point blank range with three children 30 feet away from you," said Kevin Fitzhenry.

The shooting happened on Friday. The Fitzhenrys say their sons and their friends were in the backyard playing baseball when 12-year-old Dalton chased a ball that went over the fence and onto a track where investigators say Senior Police Officer Mark Condon and his wife were walking their own pets.

1. I suppose there are mean boxers but having one, I can't see one attacking unprovoked

Boxers look scary and they get very happy and excited to see people so I could see him charging towards the other dogs and their owners. Maybe the officer misunderstood that as an attack? Sad if that's what happened.

I always said, if an intruder came into our house, even with our boxer barking, all he'd have to do is pet him and he could clean the place out while our boxer wiggled his but and licked at him.
