Boy in custody after allegedly shooting dog in Brandermill

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — A Chesterfield boy is in custody after police said he shot a dog a point-blank range Thursday afternoon.

It happened in the 13000 block of Thornridge Lane in Brandermill, which is  right off Hull Street Road and Old Hundred Road.

Police are not saying much since the suspect is a minor.

However, officials said we do know.

The boy and  an adult were arguing and  at some point, the juvenile shot a Rottweiler.

He ran from the scene but police later caught him about four miles away on Spring Gate Court.

CBS 6 News is waiting to find out exactly what charges the boy is facing.
