Police: Brighton dog owner shot in direction of another dog owner who declined his offer to have their pets fight

Boston Police report arresting Daniel Logan, 50, after he allegedly pulled a gun on a fellow dog owner and fired one shot in his direction last night at McKinney Playground off Faneuil Street.

According to police, the incident happened around 7:40 p.m. near the Keenan Road end of the park:

On arrival, officers located an adult male victim who stated that while walking his dog on the rear baseball field, he was approached by the suspect who was also walking his dog at the time of the incident. The victim stated the suspect approached him and asked if his dog was friendly. The suspect then asked the victim if he wanted to fight or wanted to have the two dogs fight, to which the victim declined. The suspect then began to threaten the victim without cause before pulling out a firearm from his jacket pocket. The suspect then chambered a round and fired one shot into the ground near the shortstop position on the baseball diamond. The victim then quickly fled the area on foot and contacted police. Officers later recovered ballistic evidence at the described location.

Logan was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, carrying a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say, adding that neither officers nor gun-sniffing dogs were able to find the gun.

Innocent, etc.

The story says he first asked the victim if HE wanted to fight (and then if the dogs could fight.) Who does that?

Somebody who should not have a gun or a dog, that's who.

Looks like a pretty clear case of "It's the owner, not the bread".

i agree that the owner is at fault, and not the bread that he chooses to eat.

It's also not the breed of dog. Shitty owners lead to shitty dogs.

No type of bread would hurt anyone without being provoked.....except maybe sourdough.

Some of those thick-crusted artisan breads can really do a number on the roof of your mouth.

There’s no knead to stereotype sourdough like that.
