Pitbull Mauls Child, Gets Shot

Got this heads-up from Commander David Kamperin on the MPD-1D Mailing List about officers shooting a pitbull in SE after they saw it attacking a six-year old girl:

Tonight at about 8:30 1D members were in the 200 block of 11th St SE when they observed a pitbull over a child apparently mauling her. They exited their vehicle and the dog rushed them. They fired at the dog striking and killing him and ending the threat. The child received bites to her arms, neck and head and was transported to the hospital. No other injuries reported. MPD will be conducting a follow-up investigation on the use of service weapon and the dog running at large.

More from WJLA and NBC4.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
