WARNING: There’s a potentially disturbing picture after the jump.
If you heard a gunshot near 15th and Carpenter early this morning, that was the cops shooting a dog.
A roving pit bull was shot by police around 6:30 this morning on the 1400 block of Montrose Street, between Broad and 15th. A police spokeswoman told NBC10 that the dog had been attacking people and charged at the officers who responded.
But a resident of the block, who posted a picture of the bloody aftermath to his Twitter account, says the dog was lying on the stoop. He said he couldn’t even hear barking before the shots were fired.
