Mya’s owner called the police because of a family disturbance.

When they arrived, Mya ran down to the edge of the yard, barking. An officer pulled their gun and fired.

Mya, shot and scared, ran into her owner’s arms. Police approached the dog and unloaded their weapons.

“I have 3 girls, and with Mya, it definitely made me feel like I have 4,” Mya’s owner said, adding, “Man, what if my girls had been around?”


The family has set up a GoFundMe, though no amount of money could make up for their loss.
