A Suffolk County Police officer fired his gun at pit bulls in North Babylon on Monday night. Police say they responded to a 9-1-1 call of multiple pit bulls biting people on July 13, 2020. Authorities say three pit bulls had escaped from a yard on Woods Road and had bitten four local residents. Officials say one of the dogs attacked a First Precinct officer and an independent contractor from New York State who responds to animal complaints. The officer fired two shots at the dogs. The dogs were not struck. The dogs retreated back to their yard when the owner of the home arrived. Four people required medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. Two people were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip. Police notified the ASPCA and Babylon Town Dog Warden. The dogs are currently in the possession of their owner. The investigation is continuing.
