An officer shot a dog while pursuing a robbery suspect in Kensington early Saturday morning, police said.
Officers responded to a home on the 1800 block of East Thayer Street around 5 a.m. after they received word that a man was breaking into the residence. As they arrived, the suspect fled and ran into another home on the same block.
When police followed him inside, they were charged by a pit bull. An officer fired three rounds at the dog, hitting it once in the stomach, while the suspect escaped from the back of the house.
