RAINS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Former Rains County Deputy Jerrod Dooley will be arraigned soon.

Dooley was booked in and out of jail on May 27, records show. He will be arraigned in Rains County on June 19.

According to the Rains County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Jerrod Dooley was fired in April as a result of an incident wherein he shot a dog in a resident's yard when he was responding to a call. Sheriff David Traylor said that it was for Dooley's safety because of threats. He added that it is the safest move for the department and the deputy.

Rains County homeowner Cole Middleton arrived home around 11 a.m. on April 18 and discovered his home had been burglarized. Middleton said his guns, iPad and his wife's jewelry had been taken. Middleton called 911 at 12:46 p.m. At 2:41 p.m., Dooley arrived at the home.

Middleton said when Dooley arrived to investigate, he claimed the dog was about to bite him and shot the dog to defend himself.

The homeowner says the dog was shot in the head.
