HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – A peaceful day at the dog park ended in a shooting that claimed the life of a 2-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier.

“I don’t know how I’m going to sleep tonight,” an eyewitness said. “I’m going to hear the sound of those bullets, all of that blood gushing out of that poor animal.”

The witness said the day started as any other day would at the dog park.

The witness says 2-year-old Diesel was playing with another dog when a man suddenly opened fire.

He said the owner of the other dog kicked Diesel and then shot him three times at close range.

“Pow, the dog cries and I’m like, ‘What?’ Then he gets closer,” the witness remembered. “Pow, pow, two more bullets into that dog. That dog is bleeding from the mouth.”

Diesel was rushed to an animal hospital with a shattered front leg and two bullet wounds to the back.

He later died from his injuries.

The gun-wielding dog owner was detained by deputies and released.

“He doesn’t have any remorse,” the witness said. “He’s angry. All of that aggression. We’re all telling him, ‘I hope you go to jail.’ His dog was not in danger, he was not in danger. I don’t understand how they are not pressing charges. I witnessed everything. No one was in danger.”

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office says deputies are bringing their investigation to the DA’s office for review.
