Elgin - Police shot and killed a dog which charged officers when they responded Saturday to a large domestic disturbance where at least one person was also stabbed, officials said. Officers were called to the 100 block of Mallery Avenue at about 4 a.m. by a woman who said she had been punched in the mouth by a male and had cut another family member with a knife.
When police arrived, fresh blood could be seen on the front door, according to reports. Police announced their presence and went inside and were charged by the dog, a pit bull type mix, officials said. The dog bit one of the officers, who then shot the animal. Those in the home — many who were bloodied — then turned their aggression towards the officers, police said. Several officers arrived on scene, and a bloody knife was found near the front door. One person was taken to Presence Saint Joseph Hospital for treatment of his wounds, then was taken to the Elgin jail for further investigation.
