According to the sheriff’s office, deputies attempted to serve an arrest warrant at an apartment complex when the dog got away from its handler and ran.

“The K-9 deputy lost sight of the suspect and came upon a plain clothes sheriff’s office investigator involved in the pursuit,” Chief Deputy Randy Akies said in a statement. “When the K-9 deputy advanced aggressively, the investigator fired in self-defense.”
