Police: Group of Men Attempt to Break Into Occupied N. Bellport Home, Kill Dog

Pit bull killed after she raced out of home Thursday afternoon, police say.

A group of men who attempted to force their way into an occupied North Bellport home Thursday afternoon shot and killed a dog who ran out of the home, police said. 

According to police, four or five men attempted to enter a residence, which was occupied by four adults at the time, on Montauk Highway in the vicinity of Doane Avenue at about 3:10 p.m. 

Some of the residents attempted to push the door back but the suspects sprayed them with a chemical substance, police said. As the residents were shutting the door, a family dog raced out of the door, police said. 

One of the suspects, who all had their faces partially covered, shot the dog with a small caliber handgun and all of the men fled the scene with no proceeds from the attempted burglary, police said. The dog, an 11-year-old three-legged female pit bull named Sarah died from her wound, police said. 

No arrests have been made as the investigation continues.

Dee...People like you will condemn the police whatever they do...This 'hood' mentality is what will keep you and your ilk trapped in your lovely little crime ridden 'communities' for the rest of your - and worse - your childrens lives...By the way, how many government 'assistance' programs are you on???
