BALTIMORE (AP) — An Elkton couple has sued the town, the police department and the Cecil County SPCA for $5 million in the shooting death of their pit bull.

Nakia McCourry and Kenny Bedwell, who owned the dog, named Shiloh, filed the suit Thursday in U.S. District Court in
Baltimore.

According to The Daily Record, the lawsuit says police went to their home in October when Shiloh broke through a fence and got into the front yard. The complaint alleges a police officer shot the dog multiple times in a display of excessive force.
