Rownan you dumb B!TCH!! YOU are the reason those 2 dogs are dead!
Who walks a Rottie unleashed?
I'm glad the Deputy cited you for not having him leashed.
Look what your own stupidity has done and YOU want to file suit???
The owner of the Pit should file suit against YOU!
This is YOUR fault!

Two dogs face off in a Lee County yard, when one of their owners shoots both of them dead.

Bonita Rownan watched as a man shot and killed her Rottweiler, Saint, and his own dog Thursday morning.

"The guy just shot at them. I don't think he meant to shoot his own dog, just mine. But he got them both," said Rownan.

Rownan was walking Saint without a leash, when he got into a fight with a pit bull chained to a fence in the yard of a yard on Ione Avenue in the Tice Community. Next thing she knew, gun shots rang out.

"I came to get my dog, he said I was lucky he didn't shoot me, too," exclaimed Rownan.

When Lee County deputies got to the scene, the alleged shooter was no where to be found. Detectives are still looking for him to get his side of what happened. However, officials with the Sheriff's Office tell us it's likely the shooter won't be charged. Investigators believe he was trying to stop Saint from attacking the chained pit bull.

Rownan was cited for not having saint on a leash. She plans to file a civil lawsuit against the alleged shooter next week in court.

I agree. The Pit Bull was not to blame in this incident.
