JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Jackson woman is furious that police gunned down her child's dog Thursday. A woman who identified herself as Jackie, said the dog was a harmless pet.

This happened on West Silas Brown street around 11 Thursday morning. The city's animal control unit came and dragged what appeared to be a small female Pit Bull from under a tree. The owner told us the dog was given a birthday present for her son last year.

"They killed the dog for no reason. She was nothing but a pet," said Jackie. "My baby got the dog for his birthday. And it's killed. Then they don't know why. Police, don't trust the police, that's why. How can we trust them? They shoot before they ask any questions. And that ain't right,"

Scores of lawmen were on the scene at the house. They had guns drawn as they searched the home, a storage unit and a red pick up truck.

According to Jackie, her estranged husband, Eddie Jones, and his girlfriend Kim Stewart were taken into custody. No word on what was found on the property or what the charges are.
