LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A dog that was shot as it charged a Lincoln man is expected to survive.

Lincoln police Capt. Michon Morrow (mih-SHAWN’ MOR’-roh) told the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1hesVFn ) that the incident occurred Monday evening in the Capitol Beach neighborhood.

Morrow says the Labrador-pit bull mix jumped its owner’s fence into a neighbor’s backyard. It barked and growled as it tried to get through a dog door into the neighbor’s home. A man inside the house got the dog away from the dog door but ended up cornered in the yard. Morrow says the man fired a handgun at the charging dog when it was three feet away, hitting it in the head.

No citations have been issued.
