Albany --  An East Albany man who shot and killed an attacking pit bull is still waiting for Albany Police to give him his gun back.  

As 69-year old Eloise Clearman walked her four little dogs in their backyard February 7th, the next door neighbor's pit bull jumped a fence and attacked them. Mrs. Clearman yelled for her husband.

David Clearman fought the dog then had his wife get his pistol. He shot the dog in the head. Animal control determined Mr. Clearman did nothing wrong, but Albany Police confiscated his gun as part of their investigation.

That was nearly two weeks ago. Today after WALB News 10 inquired about why the gun hasn't been returned, Captain Green with APD called the Clearmans and told them as soon as the Officer who worked the case returns from his two days off, the gun will be returned.

Mrs. Clearman is taking rabies shots because of a bite she suffered during the attack.
