All in a day's work

Al Phillips wants to know why a Chicago police officer shot his dog while writing a traffic ticket outside his house.

"My neighbor called and told me I was getting a ticket on my van. When I opened the fence, my puppy ran out. That's when I heard two gunshots and the officer shot my dog," Phillips said.

The 7-month-old Bull Terrier miniature puppy survived but had a bullet in its leg and fragments in its abdomen.
