A Chicago family claims in court that a police officer fatally shot their dog for no reason and then blamed it on a fictitious perpetrator.
Terry and Atara Taylor say Chicago police officer Mark Rodriguez unlawfully entered their backyard at 7a.m. on Aug. 18, 2014, and shot their dog six times, killing it.
According to a lawsuit they filed Wednesday in Northern Illinois Federal Court, the Taylors didn’t know what happened when they were awakened by the gunshots, but they saw Rodriguez outside walking toward his squad car.
“Terry Taylor opened the front door and asked defendant Rodriguez if he was okay and what had happened…Defendant Rodriguez ignored him and kept walking towards the front yard,” the complaint states. “At that moment Terry Taylor observed his family dog—a nine-year old Italian Mastiff Cane Corso—lying on the ground and bleeding out.” Taylor asked Rodriguez why he shot the dog, and Rodriguez allegedly replied, “I didn’t shoot your damn dog, the perpetrator shot your dog.”
