AUSTIN TX - AN 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS ATTACKED BY THE "FAMILY PIT BULL" WHILE PLAYING VIDEO GAMES - AN OFFICER ARRIVED AND WAS ATTENDING TO THE GIRL'S WOUNDS WHEN THE PIT ATTACKED HER AGAIN AS WELL AS THE OFFICER SO HE WAS FORCED TO SHOOT IT




UPDATE:  http://www.fox7austin.com/news/local-news/218036573-story

An Austin police officer was attacked by a dog Tuesday night while responding to a call in South Austin.
It happened at approximately 6:15 p.m. in the 3100 block of Powell Circle.
The APD Watch Commander says an officer responded to a call of a dog attacking a child. When the officer arrived the dog bit the officer -- who then shot the dog.
Austin-Travis County EMS says three patients were evaluated at the scene. Two adult males and one female child. One officer was taken to a nearby hospital with potentially serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Another officer refused medical attention.
The 11-year-old girl, who was playing video games when the dog attacked her, was taken to Dell Children's Medical Center with serious, non-life threatening injuries. 
The girl's uncle has told CBS Austin the child is still in the hospital as of Wednesday afternoon and has bite marks on her shoulder and leg. The man added this was "A FAMILY DOG THAT HAS NEVER SHOWN AGGRESSION BEFORE."
APD officials at first said the dog had not been killed and was taken by Animal Control, along with a second dog. Officers at the scene of the shooting have told CBS Austin crews the dog died from injuries sustained in the shooting.

Correct me if I am wrong but is this the first attack triggered by a Video Game? I do not recall that being on the list.

Poor pibble was probably just trying to save the person from being "killed" in the game.......... (You know I do not think that is far fetched enough that some nutter would not utter that thought)

I watched this video, and OMG! Who is the nutter reporter/! Asking if the officer was going to get charged, and then asking about the shooting? ARE YOU THAT STUPID! OH MY GOODNESS! IT WAS NEAR A SCHOOL AND NEIGHBORS WERE WORRIED! SHUT UP IDIOT! SCHOOL IS CLOSED IN THE EVENING, AND THERE WAS AN ACTUAL CHILD THAT WAS GETTING MAULED BY A PIT BULL THAT WAS NOT STOPPING! THAT WAS THE REAL DANGER, IDIOT!
