A US woman was killed by a Texas police officer who was shooting a dog he thought he was attacking in the Arlington area.

The incident occurred according to the British Mirror newspaper after residents of the area contacted the police to report a unconscious woman on the grass next to a road. When a police officer arrived at the scene to help the woman named Margaret, she was surprised by the dog. The officer was horrified, so he was only the month of his pistol and shot him, but he made a mistake and hit the woman in the chest to leave life on the impact in the hospital.

Texas police gave Officer Will Johnson, who was in charge of the incident documented by a camera attached to his suit, an administrative leave and opened an investigation into the shooting.
