    Officer Jason Holman responded to the residence on the 700th block of 11th Corso.

    The dogs then charged Holman a second time. He withdrew his gun and fired one shot toward the dogs.
    Schebaum said the dogs were unharmed and ran back toward the residence.
    More police officers arrived at the scene to retrieve the dogs. Schebaum said they were taken to the Arbor Valley Animal Clinic. Schebaum had no details about the status of the dogs nor the officer.
    The name of the owner of the dogs hasn't been released.
