JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Craighead County sheriff’s deputies are investigating yet another report of a dog being shot.

Brian A. Ray, 40, who lives in the 7900-block of Highway 141 in Jonesboro, said he was working in his yard Wednesday evening when someone shot his pit bull.

He told Deputy Bobby Swan he heard a gunshot, then heard a door close at his neighbor’s house.

That’s when he saw his black-and-white pit bull standing in the roadway between his house and his neighbor’s.

When he got close to his dog, Ray noticed blood and a wound on the dog’s left side, the incident report said. He took the animal to a local veterinarian for treatment of its injuries.

Ray said his dog had been in the road the whole time and never went into the neighbor's yard.

Swan attempted to contact the neighbor, but no one answered the door. He stated the lights were out and it did not appear as if anyone was home.

This was the third time in less than a month that sheriff’s deputies have been called to investigate the shooting of a dog:
