SPOKANE— Suspects fired off rounds into a dog during a home invasion late Tuesday in Spokane.
Authorities said two suspects were on the run after the robbery around 10 p.m. on the 800 block of West Euclid.
Spokane Police Department detectives said two masked men broke into a home with guns and robbed the people inside. They said a small child was in the home at the time but no one was hurt.
However, while the suspects ran away from the home, the victim’s dog chased after them. That is when the suspects fired off three rounds into “Guardian," according to police.
The dog was taken to an animal emergency clinic for treatment and was in serious but stable condition early Wednesday. Guardian was shot next to his spine, behind his leg, and behind his shoulder.
Authorities said the suspects fled the scene in a white, older van with no windows and had a faded Spokane Shock sticker on the back. Police located the white van and are following up on suspect leads.
