A Maryland couple’s dog was killed because Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Deputies went to the wrong address.
Pam and Frank Myers were watching a movie when deputies suddenly burst into their home. For 45 minutes, the deputies kept the couple hostage in their own home.
The Myers said the deputies knew immediately that they had entered the wrong house. The house that they had meant to raid was two doors down.
The couple then heard two shots from the yard, and Pam Myers knew that deputies had shot Pearl, the family’s five-year-old boxer. She said she wanted to go out and hold her dying dog, but she said deputies wouldn’t even let her go out to tend to her dog.
The deputy that killed Pearl said he feared for his life, but the Myers said Pearl was not a danger to anyone.
The Myers want the sheriff to apologize for killing Pearl, but they said they have not received an apology yet. They said the deputies left the scene without an explanation of what happened, and the Myers added the deputies did not even acknowledge that they killed Pearl.
The Sheriff’s Department said they are investigating the incident.
