A Commerce City officer who shot and killed a dog while on a loose animal call was found not guilty of animal cruelty Wednesday, according to our news partners at 9News in Denver.
An Adams County District Court jury acquitted Commerce City Police Officer Robert Price on a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.
Officer Price was charged in Dec. 2012 in the shooting death of a dog named Chloe on Nov. 24, 2012.
Price was among several officers who responded to a call about a dog running at large in the 9600 block of Nucla Street in Commerce City. The dog was shocked with a taser and then shot multiple times.
A neighbor took cell phone video of the dog's death, which was a key piece of evidence in the case.
