LUBBOCK, Texas — The Lubbock Police Department released dash-cam video Wednesday of an officer fatally shooting a pit bull while separating two dogs as they fought in a parking lot.

Officer Clinton Lewis made short work of the response to calls that the aggressive pit bull posed danger to not only the other dog, but a number of people standing nearby.

He attempted to stop the dog by kicking it away, but when that failed, he put one round into the creature.
According to WAFB-TV, Lewis wrote in his report on the Sept. 8 incident that “The dog placed myself and others in danger of serious bodily injury. I fired one round into the dog with my LPD-issued pistol.
