Police are investigating after a dog was shot in the city’s east end on Tuesday evening.

Officers arrived on scene shortly after 7 p.m. to reports of four to five gunshots heard on Empringham Drive near Sewells Road in Malvern.

Children were playing outside at the time but none of them were injured.

A dog was rushed to an emergency vet as a result of this incident and is expected to survive. No one else was injured.

Police believe the dog was not the intended target.

“We believe there may also be a person that may have been struck, as people were seen fleeing the area,” Sgt. David Crampton said.

No suspect description has been released. Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
