Corbitt's ten year old child was playing outside with several other children (as young as 3 years old), under the supervision of an adult.
The Sheriff's Deputy came into the yard, drew his firearm, and ordered everyone (including the children) to get down on the ground.
Needless to say the children panicked, and several started crying at the sight of deadly weapons.
Then 'Bruce', the family dog, appeared. And according to witness reports, he was completely non-threatening.
But the Deputy missed. And instead he accidentally shot Ms. Corbitt's ten year old child in the leg.
You might be thinking– which is worse? The fact that the Sheriff's deputy drew a deadly weapon in the presence of so many children… or that he tried to kill a defenseless animal… or that his aim was so poor that he shot a child instead…
Yet for some bizarre reason the Deputy tried to kill the animal, firing two rounds from his weapon at Bruce.
