Woman calls police because of domestic dispute with boyfriend. The responding officer shot her dog

A Cleveland County woman  says she called a sheriff’s deputy for help, but when he arrived at her home, he  shot and killed her dog without provocation.

Tara Harmon said she  called 911 because of a domestic dispute with her boyfriend. She told Eyewitness  News 5’s Carla Wade that when the deputy arrived, she asked him to wait a few  minutes before going into her back bedroom so that she could put away her two dogs.

Harmon said the officer  did not wait and when her 6-year-old dog Sophie came near the deputy, he pulled  his weapon and shot and killed the dog. Sophie was a female blue heeler who had  just recently had puppies.

Harmon said the bullet  ricocheted off the ground and went through a wall in her kitchen. Her small children and elderly  mother were in a room about 10 feet away.
A spokesperson for the  Cleveland County Sheriffs Office said they are investigating.
