    PS)--An Enid Animal Control officer, police officer and a dog bite victim were injured in a shooting accident this morning after the officer fired his shotgun at a dog and pellets ricocheted and hit the three, Enid Police Department Captain Tim Jacobi said just after 9:20 a.m., the animal control officer "observed a man being attacked by three vicious dogs" near 100 N. 17th. The animal control officer called for assistance, and both animal control and police shortly arrived. Police say the dogs' owner momentarily gained control of the three animals, but one broke free and "charged a police officer." The officer shot the dog with his shotgun, and several pellets from the gun's buckshot round ricocheted off the road and struck an animal control officer, another police officer and the dog bite victim. All three were taken to St. Mary's Regional Medical Center and treated for "minor, mostly superficial injuries." Police say no names are being released, and the incident is under further investigation.

She is described at a white female wearing a pink spaghetti strap shirt and pink capris. She left the business without paying for a large amount of merchandise.
