2 officers injured while firing at dogs

Good shooting, guys! A Wilkinsburg police officer and an animal control officer were injured Tuesday evening when bullet fragments ricocheted off the pavement as police fired at a trio of pit bulls along Ella Street that were trying to attack them, Wilkinsburg police said. The animal control officer, David Keller, was struck in the leg below the knee and taken to Mercy Hospital, Uptown, for treatment, said Paul McIntyre, chief at Triangle Pets in McKees Rocks, which provides animal control services for Wilkinsburg.
