ORIGINAL STORY:

Round Rock police say officers shot and killed a dog Friday morning while investigating a burglary alarm call.

According to Angelique Myers with the Round Rock Police Department, officers were investigating an alarm call at a home in the 1700 block of Parkside Circle when they encountered a 120 pound Rottweiler in a back bedroom.

Myers says the dog came at the officers in a threatening manner, and fearing for their safety, the officers opened fire -- one fired six rounds while the other officer fired once.

No one was home at the time. And Myers says the front door was propped open when officers arrived.
