The deputies opened fire on the dogs, killing two.  The third was taken to an animal hospital for treatment.  The man inside the home, Robert Schutt, was also grazed by a bullet.

“During that shooting, the man inside the house who was near the dogs, he was grazed by a bullet that had ricocheted,” said Steve Shular, spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department.

Schutt faces aggravated assault charges.
