Portland police shot and killed a dog that attacked a neighbor Monday evening.
It happened just after 5 p.m. on Northeast Wygant Street near 106th Avenue.
Police said the German Shepherd dog got out of the house and attacked a neighbor. It then attacked a police officer who tried to use a Taser on the animal, police said.
Once the effects of the Taser wore off, the dog attacked a second officer, who shot it, according to police.
Police said the dog then ran off and eventually died.
Paramedics treated the neighbor at the scene.
Police did not comment on the condition of the officers involved.
