Topeka police officers shoot 2 dogs during residential call

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Police have shot and injured two dogs that they said charged an officer outside a home in Topeka.

Lt. Jack Mackey says officers exited a residence after responding to a disturbance around 10:30 a.m. Sunday when the homeowner opened the door and the dogs charged at the officer.

Mackey described the dogs as “vicious.” An officer on the scene said he had no choice but to fire because he felt threatened.

Animal control officers took the injured dogs away from the scene. Their condition wasn’t immediately known.
