A Northport Police Officer shot and killed a PIT BULL while executing a search warrant on Monday.
Two Northport Police Officers were assisting Sarasota County Deputies with a felony arrest warrant at a home when a pit bull went straight toward an officer. The officer tried to keep the dog away by kicking it in the chest but was forced to shoot it after it continued to approach him. The dog was taken to a nearby veterinarian's office where it was put to rest soon after.
This is not the first time officers have been to this house. Last October officers conducted a bust of synthetic marijuana and fake guns at the same location.
