Neighbor meaning to shoot pit bull kills Detroit woman instead

Ann Zaniewski,

A person who meant to shoot a pit bull that was attacking a woman in a Detroit neighborhood accidentally shot the woman, killing her, police said.

The 53-year-old woman was being attacked on the 9000 block of Goodwin Street, near I-75 and Holbrook, when a neighbor fired at the dog just before 7 p.m. Monday, Detroit police spokesman Officer Dan Donakowski said.

Officers who responded to the scene were not able to immediately locate the dog.

“The last I heard, they were still looking for it,” Donakowski said late Monday.

The matter remains under investigation. No other information was immediately available.
