Arkansas investigator goes to wrong house, fatally shoots family’s dog

An Arkansas family was left devastated after an investigator who allegedly mistook their address for a sex offender’s shot and killed their pet dog.

The deadly incident involving the Coiner family’s beloved pooch named Clide unfolded last week in the city of Greenbrier.

Video footage posted to Facebook by Chris Coiner shows the aftermath of the shooting as the canine lay dead on the ground.

“You shot and killed my goddamn dog, you motherf—-r!” a shattered Coiner screams to the investigator, identified by local reports as James Freeman of the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office, the video shows.

“Get off my property, motherf—-r!” Coiner shouts at Freeman. “You are a motherf—-r, you piece of motherf—–ing sh-t… shoot my goddamn dog, you p—y.”

The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office said Freeman was at the property for a sex offender compliance check, but mistakenly went to Coiner’s house instead of a nearby home, FOX 16 News reported.

Freeman had first gone to the address 72 Autumn Hills for the check, but was allegedly told the sex offender lived at the next address – Coiner’s home, the news outlet said.

Coiner claims Freeman then shot his dog in his yard because the animal barked at him.

“I was livid, I was livid with feelings and he didn’t care one bit,” Coiner told FOX 16 News.

Coiner added, “He did not make any attempt to get away from it, he didn’t make any attempt to get back in his vehicle, all he did was shoot the dog because he was barking at him.”

The distraught dad said Clide was his 3-year-old son’s “buddy” and described the pooch as a “family member.”
