Omaha police officers shoot dog after it bites teen's leg

Omaha police officers shot a dog Wednesday after it attacked a teenager.

Officers responded to reports of a dog attack about 8 p.m. near 49th and Farnam Streets.

The dog bit a 17-year-old girl in the leg and wouldn't let go, leading officers to shoot and kill the dog, said Officer Phil Anson, a police spokesman.

The teenager was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.
