Investigation Into Dog Killing Underway

(KINGSPORT) – A Kingsport neighbor shoots and kills someone’s pitbull.

Kaitlyn Williams, the owner of the pit bull, believes her dog’s death was wrongful. She says her neighbor should have called animal control or gone inside the house, instead of killing the animal.

Williams says her dog “Jeezy” escaped from her home’s back door. Minutes later…gunshots. The neighbor accused of shooting the animal is a Johnson City fireman. The man told officers, the dog was acting aggressive towards him. Williams questions that.

An investigation is underway.
