According to WKRN, the shooting took place on Wednesday morning around 10:30 a.m. in Percy Warner Park’s parking lot.

Police say the German Shepard aggressively ran up to the man as he was exiting his car. Police added that the dog approached the man amid chasing a squirrel. The German Shepard was then shot by the man three times.

The man later admitted to the shooting, telling police he was afraid due to a dog attack involving his brother when he was younger.

Charges were not pressed against the shooter.
