MILLINGTON, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County sheriff’s deputies had to shoot two aggressive dogs after responding to a call, they said Tuesday.

Deputies were called to a home on Bethuel Road, near Navy Road, in Millington just after 9:30 a.m. because of a man who they described as a “mental consumer.”

Deputies say the man released his dogs on them when they arrived.

One deputy was bitten on the foot.

Both dogs were shot and killed.

The man, meanwhile, was taken to the hospital to be evaluated and is detained while charges are sought.
