LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington Police say an officer has shot and killed a dog after the canine attacked him.

The incident happened early Wednesday morning when officers responded to a disorder at a home.

Officers told WKYT-TV in Lexington (https://bit.ly/1w8lkFp ) that a 100-pound German Shepard ran out of the home and charged at an officer several times.

Police Lt. Clayton Roberts says the dog charged the officer several times, despite attempts by the officer to get away.

The dog did not survive.

Police say no charges were filed against the dog’s owners.

The officer suffered a minor injury.
