Authorities: Ricocheted bullet meant for dog killed teen boy

Sheriff's Deputy Fatally Shoots Person in Palmdale, LASD Says

According to the Los Angeles Times, upon arrival, one of the deputies was attacked and bitten in the leg by a pitbull. Deputies then called for a sergeant to check on the injured deputy. Deputies opened fire on the dog, and one of the bullets struck the boy. The teen was hospitalized and later died. As the deputies walked up the driveway, a 60- to 65-pound pit bull "aggressively charged at the deputies and attacked one of them", biting the deputy on the knee, the sheriff's department said.

A spokesperson with the sheriff's department could not immediately describe the nature of the call to which the deputy had been responding or what had led to the shooting.

Garcia was able to tie up the dog but it broke free and attacked again.

Redskins owner says he's thrilled with ruling
Indian groups opposing the Redskins said the ruling does not change the fact that the name "is a dictionary-defined racial slur". A federal appeals court in Washington later ruled that the law barring offensive trademarks is unconstitutional.

"Two deputies engaged the dog in gunfire focused on the dog itself".

Captain Christopher Bergner said in a press conference that he believed the shot that hit the child was a product of " skip" rounds that ricocheted of the ground, originally meant to hit the dog.

"The deputy was bit on his left knee, and at that time a male Hispanic juvenile came from behind the apartment complex where the carports are and at this time we believe he restrained the dog and took him to the rear of the complex".

In response to criticism, Kelly invited parents to participate in the segment, an offer that one father accepted. Megyn Kelly's Alex Jones interview was more uneventful than its actual content previously suggested.

"It appears that as we are investigating this and looking at the evidence, that within that first six to eight feet, of where the shooting occurred with the dog, there are skip rounds in the apron of the driveway", LASD Capt. Chris Bergner said at a Thursday morning news conference.

The deputy that had been bitten was also hit by a fragment that had struck the ground but had only minor injuries, officials said. He was pronounced dead at hospital.

"The dog was not aggressive", she said.
