Officers in New Britain rescued an abandoned pit bull after being called to Prospect Street, where a gun accidentally discharged at a multi-family home, according to police.
Police surrounded the home Thursday morning after neighbors reported hearing a gunshot. No one was injured and investigators believe the gunshot was an accident, police said.
The person who fired the shot may have fled to a vacant apartment on nearby School Street, and although no one was there when officers arrived, police found a pit bull abandoned in the empty apartment.
Animal Control officers took custody of the dog. Police continue to investigate.
