Pit bull shot during search for aggravated battery suspect

Posted:

Springfield – A search of an aggravated battery suspect ends with a pit bull shot.

 

Springfield Police say Doshawn Meyers was arrested after he was hiding in a crawl space at a home in the 17 hundred block of East Jackson. When officers got to the house an occupant said the pit bull would attack, and put the dog in the basement.

 

However, the dog got out and came at the officer as if it would attack, that's when the officer shot the dog. The dog was taken to the Sangamon County Animal Control Center where it was euthanized because of its injury.
