Fort Wayne Police are investigating after an officer was believed to have been shot in the leg by a richoted bullet during a police call early Saturday morning, according to department spokesman Officer Christopher Adams.
At around 3:48 a.m. officers were called to the 4100 block of South Anthony Boulevard in reference to a domestic battery investigation involving a suspect possibly armed with a knife, according to Adams.
A pitbull came out of the home and charged at the officers, with two of them firing shots and striking the dog, according to Adams. That's when the officer was injured and later taken to a hospital in good condition for treatment. The dog was treated at the scene for its injuries.
