While He Was Killing a Dog, NYPD Cop Also Shot a Fellow Officer

•, By Jay Syrmopoul

An NYPD officer executing a search in the hunt for a robbery suspect accidentally shot a U.S. marshal in the foot when he fired at a dog that he said was attacking the federal agent, according to police sources.

The officer that shot the federal agent is believed to be a member of the U.S. Marshals Service's New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force, according to the New York Post.

The incident occurred as the task force was searching for a 25-year-old robbery suspect who they believed was hiding out in a residence.

The dog is alleged to have charged the officers on the scene, biting a U.S. marshal. However, as TFTP has reported on countless occasions, officers often claim dogs charge them when the reality is quite to the contrary.
