Tacoma police were in the area of Stanley Elementary School this afternoon.

Officers were at a nearby house doing an abatement when a dog charged at one of the officers, Tacoma police detective Gretchen Aguirre said.

An officer shot the dog around 12:20 p.m. The extent of the dog’s injuries were not immediately known.

Officials at the elementary school, 1712 S. 17th St., heard what appeared to be gunshots and decided to lock the school down, school district spokeswoman Leanna Albrecht said. They contacted Tacoma police and learned about the incident.

The school was locked down for about 10 minutes.

School officials are sending a letter home with students today to explain the incident.
