Video Contradicts Police Tale of Dog Shooting

The pooch was not so aggressive as they claimed

An Omaha police officer shot and killed a dog on a public sidewalk. The officer's report claims the shooting was justified; however, the owners call the incident an execution of a friendly, family pet. Mike McKnight obtained surveillance video of the incident for a Fact Finders exclusive.

On October 7th, after midnight, police blocked a street in the area of 35th and Vinton to look for an armed suspect. They say Chris Schulte, who lives in the area, ignored orders to stop and walked the family dog toward the search area. He was arrested and his dog, Teela, shot.

Chris Schulte said, "You know I should have got back but I was just walking on. Not threatening, dog wasn't being aggressive."
