Police had to shoot a dog on Staten Island after they say it attacked a woman then lunged at an officer.

It happened in Schmul Park Saturday afternoon.

Several dogs were fighting and when one owner tried to separate them, police say she was attacked by what was believed to be a pit bull.

The officer helped the woman, then had to shoot at the dog when he was attacked.

The injured woman suffered cuts to her hand and arms.
