“Deputy Lake Charles Police Chief Mark Kraus and another officer visited the Crochet family at their home. Kraus says they are investigating what happened. “When the suspect left the gate open the owner’s dog came out of that opening, saw the policeman running through his yard and approached the policeman. The policeman at that point, thought the dog was attacking him and he shot the dog,” said Kraus.
Kraus says it’s too soon to know whether the officer used his gun appropriately. ”
