SWFL CRIME STOPPERS PRESS RELEASE
Tips needed to track down suspect who shot family dog
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help tracking down a suspect who shot and killed a family pet in Lehigh Acres last weekend.
The victim said her son started to take one of the family’s dogs out for a walk on Saturday, July 16th around 8:30 p.m. When he opened the door, both dogs ran out unleashed. While he was in the neighborhood trying to round the canines up, he heard several gunshots in the area of Jones Drive and Leda Avenue S. Moments later, both dogs started running towards their home, with one of the dogs limping. Once securing both canines inside the residence, the victim inspected the injuries and found one wound, which appeared to possibly be from a BB gun, inflicted on the Blue Brindle pit bull’s right shoulder.
