A parole officer was shot by her partner during a routine search for a parolee. The officer was shot when the other officer was attempting to fend off an attacking pit bull.
The incident occurred at a home where three people were detained. The officers found a locked door at the back of the house and thought another parolee was hiding within. When the door was opened, however, a pit bull attacked the officers.
The shot officer was taken to the hospital with a non-life threatening injury while the another officer was taken in with dog bite wounds. The dog was taken to the pound.
