Suffolk man shoots aggressive pit bull

SUFFOLK, Va. —  Police say a Suffolk man shot an aggressive pit bull, which was later euthanized.

Diana Klink of the Suffolk Police Department tells WAVY that a man was playing with his two young children in his fenced-in yard Wednesday evening when two pit bulls began fighting and tried to break through the fence.

The dogs knocked a board loose in the fence and the man tried spraying the dogs away with a hose. When the pit bulls continued to act aggressively, the man shot one of them.

Klink says a police investigation determined the shooting was justified.
