At around 8 p.m., officers responded to an apartment complex in the 1000 block of El Rancho Drive on a report of an assault and battery between neighbors, a news release from the Sparks Police Department said.
If the location is the Banbridge Apartments, it's a low-income housing project.
While officers were gathering information from the victim, "officers heard screaming coming from a neighboring apartment where the other party in the assault and battery lived."
According to the release, a male adult - later identified as one of the owners of the dog - was bleeding from his arm.
"The officers heard a female screaming and found the female in the entry way to an apartment with the dog biting her and being physically latched onto the female's upper arm," the release said.
The female victim was later found to be the second owner.
According to the release, officers tried to physically remove the dog and then taser it when the dog reportedly tried to bite the officers. An officer then shot the dog twice and killed it.
The breed of the dog was unknown.
Officers used a tourniquet to stop the female victim's bleeding. The owners were transported to a local hospital for treatment and the neighbor declined medical attention.
No arrests were made in the assault and battery case at this time, but will be submitted to the Sparks City Attorney for possible charges.
