An Orange County deputy serving a felony arrest warrant on Tuesday was attacked by two pit bulls, officials say.
Fearing for his safety, the deputy fired at the dogs, killing one and "seriously" injuring the other, according to a report.
Officials said Orange County Sheriff's Office Gang Unit agents were serving a felony warrant at a home on 6th Street in Bithlo at about 4 p.m. when the dogs attacked.
The deputy who was attacked was treated for minor injuries to his lower legs. Deputies later arrested the man sought in their investigation.
