Police Seeking South L.A. Dog Killer After Brutal Shooting Caught On Camera

Investigators with the LAPD released surveillance video on Wednesday that depicts the killing of a dog at a home in South Los Angeles. Detectives say they released the footage hoping someone might be able to identify the four suspects seen in the video.  

The LAPD said patrol officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 900 block of East 91st street on March 9th and when they arrived at the home they discovered a dead dog in the front yard. 

Officers took the animal to a nearby shelter in San Pedro where a veterinarian determined that the canine had been shot. 

Detectives obtained surveillance footage that appeared to show two dogs in a gated yard while four pedestrians walk past. 

The home surveillance footage shows the two dogs run up to the four individuals walking past the residence on the sidewalk. Then, one of the individuals approaches the fence, and what looks like a muzzle flash can be seen. The dog then collapses to the ground, as the suspects (who are described as four males) flee the scene on foot. 

The second dog was left unharmed. 

Warning: The video below may be upsetting for some viewers:

Police are asking anyone who might have any information about the shooting to please contact the LAPD's Animal Cruelty Task Force at ACTF@LAPD.online. People can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
