Case pending in LaGrange dog shooting
Mon, 14 Jun 2010 21:29:54 GMT —
There's been a lot of talk about a dog shooting that happened in LaGrange, Missouri.
In case you haven't heard, this video was captured on the LaGrange Police Department's dashboard cam. The entire video is more than 30 minutes long, but only about 10 minutes of it is posted on YouTube.
It shows an officer shooting an American bulldog at close range twice.
We would like to caution viewers about the explicit content of the YouTube video.
We've heard from several viewers demanding answers about this, so we spent the day getting as much information about it as possible.
The LaGrange Police Department and City Hall are tight-lipped about the matter. In fact, both refused to comment because of the upcoming trial of Marcus Mays.
He's the LaGrange resident who owned the dog.
Mays is due in court this Thursday on a municipal charge of keeping a vicious animal.
He plans to act as his own attorney.
