NYPD Officer Accidentally Shoots U.S. Marshal while Firing at Dog

August 31, 2017  | 

An officer with the U.S. Marshals Services is in stable condition after he was accidentally shot by an NYPD officer during an early morning raid in Greenville, authorities said.

At about 6:30 a.m. the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force arrived at 9 Bayview Ave. to arrest a man wanted for robbery out of New York, sources said.

When law enforcement arrived, a large, aggressive dog started "attacking" one of the marshals. An NYPD officer assisting in the arrest fired at the dog—identified as a “pit bull”—five times, killing the animal, NYPD said in a statement.

However, one of the marshals was struck in the foot by the officer who killed the dog, authorities told NJ.com
