The owner heard his dog bark viciously and was about to go outside when he heard the gunshot ring out.
“The resident was inside his house and was just about to go outside to check why the dog was barking when he heard a gunshot ring out and the dog ran into the house. The dog had been shot in the stomach and died at the scene,” said Blue Security’s Andreas Mathios.
The resident, who asked not to be named, hailed the dog as a hero for saving his life.
“If it wasn’t for the dog, they would have got inside and it would have been me,” he told Blue Security.
Mathios said the shooter was believed to have fled with three other men in a silver Toyota Corolla Sprinter which was parked in the road.
