OH: Armed Neighbor Uses Handgun to Stop Dog Attack on 7-Year-Old
The incident occurred at about 12:50 p.m. in the backyard at 3956 Woodhurst Dr., off Glendale Avenue near Heatherdowns Country Club.
A neighbor, Shawn Soleau, 37, of 3966 Woodhurst, heard screaming from his residence and went to the scene with a handgun, police said.
The child’s caregiver, whose name was not released, was wrestling with the dog and trying to get it off the girl, police reported.
The dog would not relent, so Mr. Soleau fired the gun four times at the dog — striking it at least once.
