An off-duty LAPD officer walking his dog in Elysian Valley last night opened fire on another dog that threatened to attack him. The officer was confronted by a “vicious dog” around midnight near Dorris Place and Blake Avenue, according to the Northeast Division Twitter feed. The officer fired one round, missing the dog, said Lt. Stacy Spell with the Northeast Division. The officer was not bitten or injured.
An investigation is underway as is department policy, he said.
