MO: Man Shoots Pit Bull that Snapped Leash
When they passed neighbor Wagner’s house, his boxer Bruce darted out of the open garage toward Lou and the dogs began to act aggressively toward each other.
McCarthy attempted to pull his dog away, but police said the leash snapped and the interaction devolved into an all-out dog fight. The teen ran to get his mother, Nel-Lani Powers, for help.
But Wagner grabbed his pistol and shot Lou in the back before Nel-Lani was able to address the situation, she said.
