The Norman Police Department responded to a Norman dog park after a report of a shot dog Saturday afternoon.

When NPD arrived at the Norman Community Dog Park, 1001 E. Robinson St., the suspect on scene claimed his dog was interacting with the victim’s dog, which became aggressive, according to a police report. That’s when the suspect allegedly pulled out a gun, firing once and hitting the victim’s dog.

Witnesses at the scene told NPD the two animals appeared to be playing, according to the report. The victim took his dog to a veterinarian, and its condition is unknown.

According to the report, officers completed a warrant request for the suspect for reckless discharge of a firearm and animal cruelty.

NPD is still investigating the incident. This story will be updated as more information is available.
