This makes me sick. The dog was excited! Not angry. Ugh

They had been sent to investigate a neighboring apartment when a four-year-old pitbull named Spike wandered out into the hallway from his home. Excited by the sight of potential visitors, the dog wagged his tail and began to bark playfully.

But one of the officers was spooked by the dog and didn’t notice his obvious friendly intentions. So he raised his gun and opened fire on Spike, fatally wounding him with a gunshot to the head.
