Redmond police confirm officers shot 2 dogs, killing 1, during investigation at homeless camp

Police say dogs behaved aggressively: veterinarian doesn't note history of aggression

REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- While investigating the whereabouts of a stolen trailer and contents, Redmond police officers shot two dogs, one fatally, Tuesday night at a large houseless encampment off Northeast 17th Street and Greenwood Avenue.

"I got an urgent phone call from an unhoused community member, pretty distraught, saying the police had shot and killed someone's dog out there," Companion Animal Medical Project Executive Director Johannah Johnson-Weinberg told NewsChannel 21 Wednesday.

Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, Johnson-Weinberg went to the houseless encampment in response to the caller, whose dog was wounded, but stable.

When she arrived, she saw a small trail of blood and two Redmond officers burying a 1-year-old spayed female pit bull mix.

A 2-year-old spayed female pit bull mix suffered a bullet graze wound.

"She wasn't bleeding out -- it was certainly a graze, the skin was apart, but it's a relatively clean wound," Johnson-Weinberg said.

Police said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that the two dogs were off-leash and behaving aggressively.

Lt. Jesse Petersen said the officers "were approached by several aggressive off-leash dogs" and confronted by two of them while they were trying to contact the occupants of the houseless camp, near where the reported stolen property was located.

"One of the detectives unsuccessfully attempted to separate himself from the dogs, and fired shots at one of the dogs, which later died," he said.

A short time later, police say, another off-leash and aggressive dog ran toward a detective, but fled once he shot at it. Its status is currently unknown, police said. Officers stayed on scene and buried the deceased dog for its owner.

Petersen added, "RPD will conduct a review of the entirety of the incident (from initial call response to conclusion). Findings will be presented to the captain and chief for review. The incident will also be presented to the District Attorney's Office for review per policy."

Having interacted with the dogs involved on many occasions, Johnson-Weinberg said they were friendly.

"We've provided care for these pet owners multiple times, so we're very familiar with not only the owner, but also these dogs," said Johnson-Weinberg, who is a veterinarian.

She said she spoke with the unhoused woman who lost her dog, and noted how distressed and shaken she was.

"It was very traumatic. Their dogs are their lives," Johnson-Weinberg said.

Do Redmond police have body cams? Would be very interesting to see that video, seems more to the story. Like why were they burying the dog? Seems odd they had a shovel with them.

Good questions. Is it SOP to bury animals they shoot?

Cops are really good at shooting dogs it turns out. Terrible at actually protecting and serving the community.

"Terrible at actually protecting and serving the community" Well, snowflake, feel free to do your part at protecting us Wow, you are clueless at what that even means. So happy for you that you live under the protection of our Police, and miltary, while expressing your right to question the way they do their jobs.

Here's a novel thought. If you are "houseless" don't have a fenced area, and own an aggressive dog, maybe keep it on a leash or contained. I feel bad for the officers who had to make the decision. Great job on recovering the trailer! I have been recreating east of Redmond and been chased several times by aggressive off leash dogs.

Is there bodycam video from the police? Not prejudging, but find it odd that these dogs interacted appropriately with veterinarians and a local pet care volunteer group. Curious what the cameras would show. I am a retired dog trainer.

I guess the "story" didn't merit mention of the Redmond Leash Law.

This is on BLM land, apparently, not within city limits. East of 17th Street.

#1 rule of dog ownership; not on your own land, keep on a leash.

Thank you redmond PD. That particular area is getting bad. Having an off leash pit bull is asking for incident. I'm a dog lover but have no use for pit bulls.

Thoroughly tragic. One account I have read says the dogs were fired on from a distance while running away . . . that the officers showed up unannounced and did not reveal the reason for their visit. We definitely need more answers; I hope Redmond PD can furnish.
