After Attacked By 3 Dogs, Man Opened Fire

Three dogs attacked Mauricio Garcia when he was walking near his home at 9343 SW 4th Lane, in Doral, late Wednesday morning. He pulled out a gun and shot one of them to death.

He was scared, but when CBS4 later caught up with him, he said jokingly, “I’m alive”.

CBS Chopper4 flew over the scene soon after the incident happened, and the 74-year-old Garcia could be seen sitting down, the pants covering his left leg were torn. A woman was handing water to him.

“I heard it,” said neighbor Alice Villa. “He pulled out a gun and shot the dog right there.”

Miami-Dade officials said the three dogs belonged to a neighbor who others in the community said “is a nice guy”, and no charges will be pressed against him.

The dogs are miniature schnauzers, which can be trained to be aggressive, and some confirmed the dogs have a history of biting.

Garcia, on the other hand is doing well, and no charges will be filed against him. He has a concealed weapon’s permit.
