Police: Dog Killed After Charging Officer

A Sioux Falls Police officer shot and killed a dog in central Sioux Falls.

Police say the animal charged the officer when he responded to a domestic assault on South Second Avenue.

Authorities say the officer backed out of the yard and attempted to close the gate, but it didn't stop the animal from attacking, which forced the officer to use his weapon.

The officer's injuries are minor. Authorities have not released information on the dog's breed.
