The four year Pup-pup was shot in the back yard of its own home in Florida. The dog's owner Antonia Williamson, went outside to enquire why police were parked outside of his house. He said: "I just heard gunshots as I was walking back to the house." The dog was shot multiple times and did not belong to anyone connected with criminal acts related to the police investiation.
