SAN DIEGO — A police sergeant fired a gunshot at a pit bull Wednesday when the dog charged her in an Emerald Hills-area neighborhood, authorities reported.

The shooting in the 800 block of Winston Drive caused no injuries or damage, according to San Diego police.

Officers went to the area twice, beginning shortly after 7 a.m., on reports that two dogs were running loose, chasing and trying to bite people, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Andra Brown said.

The sergeant was responding to a follow-up call regarding the threatening canines about 8:15 a.m. when one of them appeared and went after her, prompting her to pull her gun and discharge a single round, according to Brown.

Police eventually were able to capture the dogs, whose owner lives nearby, and animal-control personnel impounded them.

The pit bulls will be held until their master meets several requirements, including cleaning up his yard and making it escape-proof for them, said Dan DeSousa, a spokesman for the county Animal Services Department.
