Cops on desk duty for firing shots at pit bull

Witnesses said the 8-month-old dog had been on a leash but was running loose

CAMDEN, NJ — What appeared to be bullet holes in at least two cars, a house window, and near a doorway on Lemuel Street in Camden suggested a gunfight.

But witnesses said the scene was the remnants of police firing on a pit bull around 9 p.m. Friday.

More than 100 feet and across the street from where the dog fell, a bullet shattered a piece of Delia Rodriguez's front window. She had grabbed her grandchildren off a living room couch, pulled them to the floor, and flopped onto them for protection.
