FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (WTVD) -- An off-duty Cumberland County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a dog at Home Depot on Friday night in Fayetteville.

An ABC11 crew at the scene said the dog bit at least one person, a Home Depot employee.

The off-duty deputy fired two shots, killing the dog. The deputy, whose name wasn't immediately known, was at the store to shop.

Fayetteville Police responded to the incident.
