Police: Neighbor who shot, killed dog won’t face charges – The man who shot and killed his next-door-neighbor’s dog as it attacked him last week will not face any charges, according to a Genesee County Sheriff’s Office investigation of the incident. The sheriff’s department probe determined that the neighbor did not violate any law when he shot the animal, a bullmastiff named Pepper. The neighbor had the right to shoot the canine with his .357 magnum pistol because he was on his own property when the dog attacked him, the report concluded.
