Woman injured by bullet fragment when cops shoot dog at Port Orange home


Doctors pulled a bullet 'sliver of bullet fragment' from the leg of 32-year-old Toby Beute, police say.


A woman was injured by a stray bullet fragment on Friday, police said, when officers shot a dog at a Port Orange home.

Port Orange police said they went to the Bayridge Lane home to follow up on a prior investigation into a missing child.

When they knocked on the door, police say 32-year-old Toby Beute answered, holding a pit bull/Labrador-mix named "Boomer" by the collar. Police say the dog was barking "aggressively."

Police say the dog broke free from Beute's grip, charging toward an officer.

"Fearing harm by the advancing dog," Assistant Chief Wayne Miller said in a statement, "[the officer] pulled his service firearm from his holster and fired two rounds at the dog."

Police say the shots hit the dog in the chest area, causing Boomer to collapse immediately. The dog later died.

Shortly after, Beute told officers she "felt some pain in her right leg and noticed bleeding below her knee." She was taken to Port Orange Hospital.

According to Miller, doctors there discovered "a small sliver of bullet fragment" about three inches below Beute's right knee. Miller said the woman did not require stitches and would not need surgery.

Police said Friday they have a long history with the home, and the dog.

In December 2008, police say the dog broke out of its collar to attack another dog. In November 2009, officers used a fire extinguisher to subdue Boomer and another dog when they responded to the home to investigate a shots-fired call.

Investigators called to the home in late February were told that a child attacked by the dog had suffered facial injuries that required surgery.

Just last week, police say, the dog attacked and killed a cat at a nearby home. Police said they were called to the home after the dog was seen running around the property with the cat in its mouth.

OK… I get that they had a history with the dog… That history being DA for the most part with a high prey drive; however, the dog did bite a child in the face this year according to the article. I don’t know anything about the family other than this article, but I feel two ways about this from what I have read.
1. The cop was way too close to fire if bullet fragments are being pulled out of someone’s leg. Ever hear of pepper spray or that heavy stick cops carry?
2. Lady, had you put the dog down after he bit a child in the face then you wouldn’t have a bullet fragment in your leg. Just curious if said child bitten in face is said missing child.

OK, not the greatest article but after the Parrot incident 2 weeks ago I have issues with policeman firing (actually had issues long before that incident) their guns at dogs when people are around regardless of the circumstances. Say that had been a small child…. Not saying the dog wasn’t a nuisance but was it appropriate to shoot the dog considering fragments are flying into civilian legs?

If the dog bit a child in the face unprovoked, then it should be put down. That's HA. But with kids you never know what they do to dogs when you're not in the room. They could be jabbing it in the eye or something, which also proves that you should never leave a dog with a child unattended.

As far as the officer shooting the dog, it was inappropriate when he had pepper spray or his billy club within just as quick of reach as his gun. But it's also not responsible that if the owner knew her dog doesn't like strangers that she should have put the dog away before answering the door. We've had dogs in the past that didn't like strangers until they were sitting down for a while, and it was not hard to put them up beforehand. So it's really a 50/50 on this...the cop was in the wrong for using deadly force in such close proximity to the animal and other people. But hte woman was also in the wrong for not properly containing her dog before answering the door...

But despite everything...this will come off as another "EVIL" pit bulll, because that's what sells the papers...

Word, Wing.... I think they said it was a pit/lab mix but it probably wasn't either; however, either way you look at it I believe the proper term is mutt.
