Be careful where you let your dog do his business.
A Mountlake Terrace homeowner in the 22100 block of 43rd Avenue West was charged with reckless endangerment after allegedly shooting at a dog walker with a BB gun Tuesday evening. Police believe the incident started when the dog walker paused in front of the homeowner’s house to allow his dog to relieve itself.
“He was out walking his dog and it was urinating when a homeowner stepped out and shot at them,” said MLT Police Department Commander Doug Hansen.
The incident drew a large response from the Mountlake Terrace Police Department and law enforcement agencies from neighboring jurisdictions.
It was unknown if any of the shots fired hit either the dog walker or the dog. The dog walker did not require attention from paramedics.
