What can I say, but … oops:

According to the FWPD, officers were called to a domestic situation the 4100 block of S. Anthony Boulevard just before 4 a.m., where someone was possibly armed with a knife.

As officers arrived on the scene, police said a pitbull came outside of a residence and charged at them.

Two officers then fired shots. The dog was hit and police believe one of the bullets ricocheted and hit one of the officers in the leg.

The officer was taken to a hospital in good condition. The pitbull was treated at the scene.

An investigation is ongoing.
