About 10 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 9500 block of South Ewing after someone reported seeing a man entering a backyard with a gun, police said.

Officers then saw a man fitting the description they were given leaving a yard with a large pit bull, police said. The man ignored the officers' demands to tie the dog to a fence, police said.

The man released the pit bull which charged the police officers who fired one shot hitting the pit bull.  The pit bull later died.

Fox news had the most complete description of the event.

CBS and the Chicago Tribune chose not to inform the public that the dog was a pit bull.
