A Bibb County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a bit pull that attacked him Sunday, police said.

Deputies Dallas Malone and Barry Warren were dispatched to a domestic dispute at 4195 Fulton Mill Road between Patricia Hodges and her son Adam Hodges at 2 p.m., according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

A pit bull named Jack was aggressive and charged Malone when deputies arrived, the release stated.

The deputies told Adam Hodges to put the dog up while they were at the home. Hodges put the dog inside his mother’s vehicle. The mother later let the dog out of the vehicle and it ran toward the deputies, the release stated.

Deputies again asked that the dog be put up, and the dog was taken into the house. The dog got out of the house through the back door and attacked Warren by biting him on the back of his right leg above the ankle, and Warren defended himself by shooting and killing the dog, the release stated.

Warren was treated for his injuries at a hospital.
