Dog shot and killed, now Pueblo owner suing city and police

PUEBLO, CO- The officer was acquitted, but now the Pueblo owner of a dog shot and killed in Commerce City is suing the city and several police officers.

Officers said the dog, Chloe, was reportedly "loose and vicious" before one officer decided to shoot the dog. This took place on November 24, 2012.

However, in his lawsuit, owner Gary Branson of Pueblo says cell phone video of the incident shows just the opposite: that his dog was trying to flee, not acting aggressively toward Commerce City officers.
