A man has been acquitted for shooting a dog earlier this year at the Mt. Airy Dog Park.

Robert Marx, 74, was facing charges of charges of criminal damaging or endangering and discharging firearms. He was acquitted on Monday during a bench trial in Hamilton County Municipal Court.

Police say Marx shot the dog, a 1-year-old pit bull named Bruski, for fighting with his dog on April 2. The animal was taken to a veterinary hospital for treatment, and had to be euthanized.
