DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Police say a man died in a shooting in southwest Ohio and a dog was killed by responding officers when it tried to attack a police dog.

Officers responded to the scene Monday night in Dayton and police say someone tried to flee.

Police say a resident’s dog later attacked a police dog that had been brought in to investigate. Officers then shot the attacking dog to death.

Police say the person who ran has since been taken into custody and is considered a person of interest in the shooting.

Officials say a man in his 40s was found shot and later died at hospital.

Animal investigators were called in to remove the dead dog. Officials say an investigation into the dog’s shooting will be handled separately and internally.
