CORPUS CHRISTI - A Vietnam veteran says he shot a pitbull as he was under attack this afternoon outside his home on Bauer Drive.
Dennis Ward tells us he grabbed a 9mm pistol when two dogs charged him. The pitbull was hit, but managed to limp home.
The dog's owner rushed him to a nearby veterinarian and is expected to survive.
