MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee police say an officer killed a dog that bit one man and then tried to bite the officer.
A Milwaukee man called police Friday afternoon and said he'd been bitten by a dog outside a home.
An officer found the dog and tried to contain it but it allegedly tried to bite him as well. Police say the officer shot the dog out of fear for the safety of himself and others.
The dog died at the scene.
