An Akron officer arrived at the 1300 block of Manchester Road around 10 p.m. and observed the dog had been shot through the pad of its front paw.

The dog’s owner, a 61-year-old man, told police he had let the animal out to relieve itself before bed. At that point he heard the dog barking at something outside. Looking out, the man reportedly saw a suspect shoot at the dog and then run off across the street and hop into a gray SUV.
