Cops: Man Shoots At Pit Bulls, Hits Mother, A man accidentally shot his elderly mother while trying to break up fighting pit bulls inside their home in Plantation, Florida, Tuesday night, police said.
The son told NBC Miami that he and his mother have seven pit bulls in their house; they own three and take care of four for friends.
The dogs became aggressive and started fighting each other Tuesday night, Plantation Police spokesman Detective Robert Rettig said.
The 84-year-old mother tried to separate them, and her 50-year-old son used a pistol to shoot at the dogs, but ended up hitting his mother, Rettig said.
The son, Billy, who only wanted to give his first name, said his bullet hit his mother in the leg.
“I saw the dogs were fighting. She was on the ground,” Billy said.
“And I tried to break them up, and the one dog came at me,” and with time of the essence, he shot, he said.
