Cincinnati police say an officer forced to shoot at an aggressive dog has wounded the animal's owner.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the woman was taken to a hospital for treatment after the shooting around 9 p.m. Friday.
Cincinnati police Lt. Steve Saunders says the officer fired one round with a shotgun as the dog advanced aggressively and a pellet struck the woman, who was trying to contain the animal, in the leg. The dog had earlier bitten a man.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has taken custody of the dog. Its condition hasn't been released.
