REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police shot two dogs during a Tuesday night investigation into a stolen trailer. Authorities say detectives were trying to talk to people in a camp east of 17th Street, when they were confronted by two aggressive off-leash dogs. They say one of the detectives unsuccessfully attempted to get away from the dogs and fired at one of the dogs, which later died.
A short time later, police say, a third off leash and aggressive dog ran towards the detective. The dog owner and another person attempted to gain control of the dog without success. The detective shot at the dog, which fled. The status of this dog is currently unknown. Officers stayed on scene and buried the deceased dog for the owner.
RPD is conducting an internal review of the incident, with findings later presented to the captain and chief. The incident will also be presented to the District Attorney’s Office for review, per policy.
