MIDDLEBORO (CBS) – A 55-year-old man has been released from custody after allegedly shooting and killing his own dog.
Police say Gordon Lagstrom was drunk Saturday night, when he pulled a .38 caliber handgun, and shot to death his 4-year-old Australian terrier, Lena.
Police say Lagstrom had a license for the gun, but his permit has now been revoked.
In his Pierce Street neighborhood, some of his neighbors don’t think much of Lagstrom.

Her husband added, “he’s obnoxious and shouldn’t own a gun.”
Lagstrom was in court Monday morning, answering to the charges but said little leaving.
