Police shoot 120-pound dog after it attacks owner

Rockville police shot and killed a 120-pound Rottweiler-pit bull mix early Sunday after trying for hours to subdue the dog after it attacked its owner. Officers first tried using a Taser on the dog, named Jesus, but the dog ignored the shocks. Police say the dog's 38-year-old owner underwent surgery Saturday night for injuries including puncture wounds to his chest and thigh. Three children were in the house but weren't injured. Police were called to the home at 6:20 p.m. Saturday and spent hours trying to capture the animal. The dog apparently became agitated when its owner closed his bedroom door to keep it out.
