Grand Island police officers shot a pit bull at a motel Tuesday morning when the animal turned on them during a fight with another dog.
Police Sgt. Stan Steele said officers were called to a Relax Inn motel at 7:30 a.m. because of a dog fight. When the first officer arrived, he saw two adult male pit bulls fighting outside a corner room, Steele said. A woman nearby was covered in blood and appeared to be injured, so an ambulance also responded.
