Two people were arrested on June 2, in connection with a dog who was shot in May on the southwest side, authorities said.
Rebecca Christy, 50, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a weapon by a prohibited possessor. Her husband, Marvin Christy, 57, was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty and possession of a weapon by a prohibited possessor, said Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman, Dep. Ryan Inglett.
On May 21, deputies responded to the 3700 block of South Reno Road to a report of shots fired, said Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman, Dep. Ryan Inglett.
Upon arrival, deputies learned that the caller's dog had been shot by her neighbor, Marvin Christy, Inglett said.
Detectives found several guns in the house and discovered both residents were prohibited possessors.
The couple was booked into the Pima County jail.
The dog sustained non life-threatening injuries, but will likely walk with a limp for the rest of it's life.
