Dog killed when shots fired at pickup truck

CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. (AP) A Cave Junction woman has been charged with animal abuse and attempted assault after police say she fired at two people in a pickup truck, killing a dog in the truck's bed.

The incident on Friday began when two acquaintances of 44-year-old Robin L. Smith arrived to pick up a hand tool left outside Smith's house.

Police say one of the acquaintances was walking back to the truck when Smith walked outside and fired at him with a handgun. She missed, but fired again. One of the shots struck a dog in the pickup bed, killing it.

Smith was booked into the Josephine County Jail. An attorney for Smith could not be identified Saturday afternoon.
