| No Comments

The Andersons were furious that police opened fire on their dogs, causing one to die, while chasing after a fugitive, FOX 9 News said.

Police claimed that the dogs were approaching them aggressively outside Bobby and Leah Anderson's house as they ran after 42-year-old Roosevelt Montgomery, an escaped Level 3 sex offender, on Friday night, according to FOX 9 News.

Police spokesman Sgt. Steve McCarty told the Star Tribune that a Minneapolis officer was shot on the lower leg during the confrontation. Internal investigation on the cause of the gunshot was being launched, he said.

Montgomery was arrested Saturday afternoon near the border between Minneapolis and Golden Valley, McCarthy told the Star Tribune.

The Andersons showed FOX 9 News the damage in their house while the police searched for Montgomery. Montgomery was Leah Anderson's sister, according to FOX 9 News.

"My dogs didn't bark, didn't charge at them or anything," Bobby Anderson told FOX 9 News.
