TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- Topeka police say an officer shot and killed a dog that was trying to attack children who were getting on a school bus.

Lt. Scott Gilchrist said in a news release that officers responded to a call in southeast Topeka Monday morning that two pit bulls were trying to attack the children.

Gilchrist says one of the dogs charged an officer, who shot it after not being able to subdue the dog with his baton.

Animal control officials picked up the deceased dog and are trying to find the second dog.

Information can be given to Crime Stoppers at 234-0007.
