A dog was shot and killed Thursday night during a home invasion robbery in the 1200 block of Marion Street in Centralia, according to Centralia Police Detective Patricia Finch.
The robbery was reported at 10:36 p.m., she said.
“Three males armed with a handgun forced open the door to a residence and demanded money,” Finch said.
One of the men allegedly fired a gun several times, and killed a dog at the residence, she said. The home’s residents were not hurt, and the suspects fled in a dark colored passenger car, she said.
The case is under investigation by Centralia Police detectives, and no other details have been released at this time.
