A south suburban man has been charged after a Chicago Police officer responded to his location Sunday night and fatally shot a dog in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
Issac J. Kelly, 24, faces one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to Chicago Police.
Officers responded shortly after 7 p.m. to a call of a person with a gun in the 6600 block of South Paulina, according to Chicago Police.
While at the scene, “an officer discharged his weapon to destroy a dog,” police said.
A weapon was recovered and one person, identified as Kelly, was taken into custody, police said. Additional details were not provided.
Bond was set at $250,000 for Kelly, who lives in Monee, during a hearing Monday, according to Cook County sheriff’s office records. His next court date was scheduled for Sept. 5.
