Running into his house to fetch his handgun, the neighbor opened fire on the dogs. A nearby police officer, responding to the sound of gunfire, arrived on the scene and assisted in shooting the dogs. The boy, saved by the actions of the gun-sporting neighbor, is recovering in hospital with severe wounds. The neighbor, meanwhile may be facing charges.
