Commerce City Officer Who Shot, Killed Attacking Dogs To Be Back On Job

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – The Commerce City officer who shot and killed two dogs will be back on the job this week.

The incident happened on 60th Avenue between Newport an Oneida streets just before 8 p.m. last Wednesday.

Two officers saw the dogs attacking a woman. One of them ended up shooting the dogs.

“This was not an overzealous cop with a gun. This was a guy watching a little woman be attacked by a big dog and did the only thing that he could’ve done,” the woman’s boyfriend Jayson Emo said.
