The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

MINNEAPOLIS — A body cam­era video shows a Minneapolis po­lice of­fi­cer shoot­ing two dogs at a home where he was check­ing on a bur­glary alarm.

The footage pro­vides a new an­gle on the July 8 shoot­ing. Home­owner Jen­nifer LeMay posted her se­cu­rity video on Face­book ear­lier. Her at­tor­ney, Mike Pad­den, ob­tained the new video from po­lice and re­leased it Thurs­day. It shows of­fi­cer Michael Mays en­ter the back­yard. Ciroc runs to­ward him, tail wagging. The dog stops as Mays backs away, then walks to­ward the of­fi­cer, tail still wagging, be­fore Mays fires. The sec­ond dog, Rocko, then runs at Mays. He shoots Rocko, too.
