In a statement issued tonight, CPD said the 53-year-old man shot the dogs after they "continued to advance toward him in an aggressive manner" while off their leashes. Police said a 45-year-old woman was walking the dogs in the 1000 block of West Oakdale around 1:45 p.m. when they rushed toward the man as he entered the alley from a nearby residence. He stepped back, but they continued to advance, prompting the man to shoot them "in fear for his safety." Officers locked down the neighborhood after witnesses reported that a man shot two dogs and ran into a nearby apartment building. A SWAT team searched the building, and officers contacted the man around 6 p.m. They determined that he was properly licensed to own and carry concealed firearms, the source said. ... Harriet Tubman Elementary School, 2851 North Seminary, went on a soft lockdown as the incident began, but students were released after class.
