Upon arrival, officers located a dog suffering from a gunshot wound being tended to by its owner. The owner advised police that an unknown Hispanic male, in his late teens or early 20s and wearing a black hooded jacket and dark colored pants, had ridden by his residence on a dark colored mountain bike.

Upon seeing the dog in the owner’s yard, the male stopped his bicycle, pulled out a handgun, chambered a round and fired one shot at the dog for no apparent reason.
