CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A Cape Coral Police officer is under investigation for shooting a family's pet.
Neighbors called police to NW 37th Place on Thursday, after two dogs were running loose and chasing walkers. The officer said one of the dogs lunged at him, and he had no choice, but to shoot.
The dog will be recover, but its owner and some neighbors say the shooting should have never happened.
