Secret Service agent shoots and kills leashed shepherd on Brooklyn street

In Brooklyn, New York, an off-duty secret service agent shot and killed a Belgian shepherd being walked on a leash by a man and his girlfriend on Monday evening.

According to the New York Daily News, the agent, whose name has not been released, had been walking on Caton Place when he turned the corner. At that moment, the dog started to bark at him at which time the agent pulled out his gun and shot her. The dog’s owner was shocked and visibly shaken as authorities arrived.

“I can’t f—ing believe you let the gun go off,” a witness heard the shocked owner of the dog yell to the agent.”

In a statement to the Daily Beast on Twitter, the Secret Service:

 “An off duty Secret Service employee was involved in the shooting of an unleashed dog in Brooklyn, NY this evening. As this is an ongoing NYPD investigation, the Secret Service will not have further comment.”

The  35-pound dog’s photo taken by the New York Daily News showed the dog’s body covered by a white sheet with the leash still attached. After the initial investigation at the scene, the owner removed his dog’s body in an SUV and left.

Rest in peace sweet dog.
