CINCINNATI (USA Today) — Leslie McElrath Jr. was pulling up to his house Wednesday just before 6 p.m. when he heard gunshots.
He rushed out of the car to find the shots had come from police officers, aimed at two pit bulls that had viciously attacked his 6 year-old granddaughter, Zainabou Drame.
“The pit bulls had my grandbaby by the face and they were dragging her up the street,” McElrath recalled Thursday. “My dog (Cappuccino) and her momma beat those dogs off my baby. That is how she is still alive.”
