Body camera video has been released for the Minneapolis Police Officer who shot two dogs who were inside of their own yard, and the evidence does not appear to support the officer’s claim that he was charged before he made the decision to shoot his gun.
According to the Associated Press, Officer Michael Mays had stated that Jennifer LeMay’s dogs had charged him before he opened fire on them when he responded to a security alarm call on July 8. The body cam footage shows a dog named “Ciroc” wagging his tail as he trots over to Mays – the dog then walks, tail still wagging, towards Mays.
Another dog, named “Rocco,” runs towards Mays, who proceeds to shoot at both of them – surprisingly, the dogs survived, but suffered serious injuries. A fundraiser has been created to help cover the veterinary expenses for the dogs (click here to learn more).
Mays is being investigated and the department is helping to cover the veterinary bills for both dogs.
