Everett Man Shoots, Kills Neighbor’s Loose Pit Bull – EPD Investigating
Police and Everett Animal Control are investigating what happened this morning on Lower Ridge Road
The Everett Police Department and Animal Control Officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting and killing of a Pit Bull this morning in the 7100 Block of Lower Ridge Road in South Central Everett. According to Everett Police Sgt. Ryan Dalberg, Everett Animal control officers received a call at their business offices at 9:08am of a Pit Bull loose in the 7000 – 7100 block of Lower Ridge Road. At 9:53am, Sno-Pac 9-1-1 operators received a call from a man who said he shot and killed his neighbors Pit Bull. Dalberg tells me from what they know so far, the daughter of the man who shot the dog, went out to get into her car to go to work when a neighbor’s Pit Bull charged down the driveway at her. She ran into her house and told her father. They both stayed inside the house for a time and when they didn’t see the dog anymore, Dad got a pistol and walked his daughter out to her car. As they were walking to the car the Pit Bull allegedly charged at them. The daughter went back into the house while the man retreated backwards. The man reportedly told officers that when he couldn’t back up anymore, he shot the advancing dog. He then called 9-1-1 and waited for the police. Sgt. Dalberg says police don’t anticipate any arrests today but will conduct an investigation into why the Pit Bull was loose as well as the actions taken by the man who shot and killed the Pit Bull. They will then forward that to the Prosecutor’s office.
