FORT WORTH - Police have released dash cam video from a shooting incident that slightly injured two people.

Officers had gotten out of their patrol car to question a driver who had a teen and child riding in the back of a pickup truck.

That's when they say a pit bull lunged toward them, barking and growling.

An officer opened fire - hitting the dog in the leg.

A bullet ricocheted. One grazed a man in the knee and another in the stomach.

Neither was seriously injured.
