On October 7, 2012 at approximately 10:50 a.m., officers from the Eastern District responded to the area of Vena Lane and Notley Road in Pasadena for a reported aggressive animal. Officers arrived on scene and learned an off-duty officer with the Maryland Transportation Authority Police Department shot and killed a pit bull that was attacking him. Preliminary investigation shows the pit bull had escaped from a residence on Vena Lane. The dog appeared aggressive, growling and approaching residents in the neighborhood. A resident of the neighborhood asked the off-duty officer for assistance. The officer was attempting to guide the dog back to its residence when it charged and attacked the officer’s leg. The officer drew and discharged his issued departmental weapon striking the dog. The dog ran then collapsed a few yards away. The off-duty officer received minor injuries to his leg as a result of a bite. View Source.
