TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say police shot and killed two dogs that charged two officers in midtown Tulsa.

Police spokesman Leland Ashley says the officers were responding to a report of a vicious dog when the shooting occurred at about 5:30 p.m. Monday. Ashley says witnesses told police that the two dogs had been chasing people throughout the neighborhood.

Earlier in the day, Tulsa officers responded to an incident in the same neighborhood where a man was bitten in the leg by a dog. Ashley says officers don’t know if the dogs shot by police were the same ones involved in the earlier incident.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/TJmerk) that the dog-bite victim later received stitches in his leg for the injury.
