The Prince George's County Sherrif's Office has conducted an investigation and determined that the killing of the dogs was justified. The claim is:
The sheriff said that one dog was engaging an officer and that the other was running toward a second officer at the time the black Labs were shot...However the mayor says the claim is a fabrication, and has medical evidence to back it up:
The necropsy concluded one dog was shot four times and the other twice, including once in the dog's back legs.Disgusting. Invade someone's home. Shoot dogs fleeing in terror. Cover it up in the ensuing investigation. I can only hope that the investigation doesn't stop here. If a mayor is powerless to prevent such police overreactions such as this, what hope does a common citizen have?
Calvo said the necropsy has bolstered his contention that neither dog was threatening law enforcement officers during the raid and that one dog was shot from behind as he fled into a back room.
