NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - Authorities in Delaware say police killed two aggressive dogs after they attacked an officer.

New Castle County police officers were dispatched Tuesday afternoon after a home burglary alarm activated.

Upon arriving at the residence, an officer learned that the alarm was triggered from a backdoor. After walking around to the rear yard, the officer was attacked by the dogs. The officer fired a stun gun at one of the dogs but that did not stop it. The officer then shot and killed the dog before being taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Assisting officers found the second dog a short time later. Officials say that dog remained aggressive and was killed by police.

The homeowners were cited for allowing dogs to run loose and not vaccinating them.
