A Philadelphia sheriff's deputy shot and killed a dog that attacked him Monday morning when he tried to break up a fight between two men outside the city's One Parkway office building at 16th and Arch Streets, officials said.
The dog belonged to one of the men involved in the fight, a Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.
She said the men got into the fight about 8 a.m. and the deputy tried to break it up. The dog then attacked the deputy, the spokeswoman said. Police said the deputy fired twice, killing the dog.
