Dog shot and killed; neighbors heard it all

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More animal cruelty takes the life of another dog in Albany this weekend. Albany police responded to 1707 Spruce Lane after someone had found a dog lying in the yard.

Police say someone shot and killed the dog around 10:30 Saturday night. One witness who lives at the address where the dog was found says it appeared to be a Pit Bull that did not have a collar. A teenager and his cousin across the street say they heard several gunshots.

"I was washing dishes in my grandma's house and I heard three gunshots and I just heard a dog start crying so I looked out the blinds and it seemed like it was coming from down the street but I guess the dog ran back to the lady's yard," said Devontay Turner.

Police have no suspects at this time. It's unclear if the dog had an owner.
