Vinny is German Shepherd with a bullet wound on the back of his neck. On Monday, a Leander police officer shot Vinny when he says the dog and another German Sheppard came running at him while trying to serve a warrant.
“He said they were growling, and closing distance very quickly,” said Lt. Derral Partin, a spokesperson for Leander Police.
However, Vinny’s owners Renata and Chris Simmons, say Vinny has never acted aggressively.
