An off-duty Philadelphia police officer was walking his personal dog today in the city's Fernhill section when it was attacked by two other dogs.
The off-duty officer flagged down a passing on-duty officer, according to police. One of the attacking dogs lunged at the on-duty officer, who then fired his gun, killing the dog. The other dog fled.
Police say the incident occurred about 10 a.m. on the 4000 block of McKean Street.
