    The following press release came from the Washoe County Sheriff's Office late this afternoon: Washoe County Deputies responded to a call in the Red Rock area near Silver Knolls Park in reference to a dog fight where a dog was killed and an individual was injured. At approximately 8:40 am on October 26, an elderly couple was walking their 8 year old Labrador on a leash, along a path in the desert near Silver Knolls Park. Two unattended loose dogs, one Pit bull and one medium sized mixed breed, appeared from over a hill in front of the couple. The unrestrained dogs attacked the leashed Labrador. The Labrador owners tried unsuccessfully to separate the dogs. The owner of the loose dogs arrived from over the hill in her vehicle. All three owners continued attempting to separate the dogs from the Lab but were unsuccessful. Finally, the owner of the Labrador who was carrying a firearm in an unconcealed open holster, drew his weapon and fired one round into the pit bull who held the labrador by the neck. The pit bull released his grip on the labrador’s neck and died on scene. It was discovered that the round also struck the pit bull’s owner in the lower leg. The labrador’s owner provided first aid until REMSA arrived and care-flighted the victim to Renown Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The Labrador was seriously injured and underwent surgery, the current condition is unknown. The elderly female also sustained a dog bite and other minor injuries during the dog fight.

    Gun carrier was attacked by a pit bull and other dog while walking his labrador on a leash in the desert. His wife was also bitten before he fired. He shot one time and the pit bull's owner got hit in the leg, probably by a pass through.

    I just wanted to support his actions. Woman lost control of her dogs, and the dogs were well on their way to attacking the people. I do feel we're all responsible for the bullets we fire, I just hope the sheriff isn't too harsh on this fella. Hope they see that the woman who got shot in the leg could've prevented the entire situation...

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I would think there will be no charges officially filed. The other owner might try to press some sort of charges but it is clear that the shot fired was in self defense and to protect the lives of others.

    Well done.

    i certainly hope no charges are filed. it sounds like the guy did everything he could to deal with the situation before resorting to his firearm. too bad the other owner's leg was in the line of fire.
