A dog owner is filing a lawsuit against three Commerce City Police officers and the city for the shooting death of his dog.
Chloe got loose from a dog sitter on Nov. 24, 2012. Officers responded when a 911 caller reported an aggressive pit bull loose in the neighborhood.
Officers said they spent 20 minutes trying to find a person responsible for the dog before deciding the dog needed to be caught and taken to the animal shelter. When officers approached Chloe inside an open garage, they said she continued to be aggressive.
