Pit Bull dog shot after attacking woman walking dogs

Lewiston, ID - Police are continuing their investigation Thursday after a Pit Bull dog was shot and killed by a passerby Wednesday morning on 9th avenue, in Lewiston.

Police said the dog chased and cornered a woman and her two dogs, eventually injuring one of them.

The dog's owner admitted that she tried to find the dog after it escaped from its fence, but she couldn't locate it and went off to work. Police said during that time, the dog attacked the woman with her dogs, so a neighbor came to help them out, and ultimately shot the dog, killing it.

The dog owner has been cited.
