Police Kill Dog Responding to Accidental 911 Call

An Atlanta woman is grieving the death of her dog after police shot it while responding to an accidental 911 call.

Kelley Rodriguez said her niece made the call by mistake. When officers knocked on the door, her pit bull mix "Jane" ran outside her home on Grant Terrace in southeast Atlanta.

Police said the dog tried to jump on one officer and he shot it in the head.

Rodriguez said her dog was not trying to attack the officer.
