An officer with the Austin Police Department shot a dog in East Austin Thursday, according to police officials.

Officials say the officer was responding to a burglary call along Delores Avenue, just east of Springdale Road, when he was attacked by a pit bull in the home’s back yard, prompting the officer to shoot the dog.

The dog was taken to the Austin Animal Shelter where it died from its wound.
