A sheriff's deputy shot an "aggressive dog" that chased someone into a business in Lake Lillian, Minnesota.
The pitbull was reportedly running loose near the U.S. Post Office on Lakeview Street (the main street in the town) just before noon Tuesday, the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
And when deputies arrived, they got out of their squad car and the dog charged at them.
One of the deputies shot the dog once and it retreated, the release says.
The dog's owner brought the dog to the vet, but the dog's condition isn't known.
According to Lake Lillian city ordinance, it's unlawful for a dog to run loose, and the owner could face a misdemeanor if it happens.
