SAN MARINO, California — Authorities say an officer responding to a home robbery shot and wounded a dog that confronted him in a yard in a wealthy Los Angeles suburb.

San Marino police Chief John Incontro says a woman returned to her home after dropping her kids at school Thursday and discovered a burglar in the house.

The suspect confronted the woman and she ran upstairs, locking herself in a bedroom and calling 911.

The chief tells KABC-TV the suspect stole a white Mercedes SUV from the garage and drove off.

Responding officers were searching nearby yards when they were rushed by a large black dog. Incontro says one officer, fearing for his safety, shot the barking dog.

The dog was taken to an animal hospital in unknown condition.
