PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police say a dog was shot at Southeast Portland high school.

KGW-TV reports at about 10:30 p.m. Friday police responded to a report of a dog shot at Grant High School at Marshall Campus.

The caller said he was a custodian who said the dog’s owner reported the shooting to him and then left with the dog.

Officers found the dog, a hound type, and the owner at a nearby animal shelter. The dog had been injured by gunshot wounds.

It’s unclear if the dog’s injuries are life-threatening.

During an investigation, officers learned the dog’s owner had been exercising the dog on school property when an unknown suspect fired at the dog.
