A grandfather has shot and wounded his 9-year-old grandson in Detroit after firing at a pit bull that was attacking the boy.
Police say the bullet passed through the dog's body, ricocheted off the sidewalk and hit the boy in the thigh Wednesday. The boy was taken to a hospital for treatment of what authorities called non-life-threatening injuries.
Animal control officers seized the dog. It survived.
