Shots rang out in a Stead neighborhood early Sunday afternoon after two pit bulls attacked a jogger and his dog.

It happened on Rising Sun Drive. Police say the man lives in the area and was jogging in a residential area when the pit bulls attacked.

“Two loose, unrestrained pit bulls attacked his dog and when he tried to separate the pit bulls and his dog, the pit bulls attacked him,” said Sgt. Joe Lever of the Reno Police Department. “He was jogging with a concealed firearm which he has a permit for. He discharged the firearm twice, striking one dog who died instantly. We followed a blood trail and found the other in a backyard with a through-and-through wound.”
