Father shoots dog in front of child during domestic fight

By Michael Purdy

Tulsa, Okla. — It's a disturbing story out of Tulsa.

Police say 42-year-old Simon Martinez was arrested Monday evening near 31st and Garnett, after shoving his significant other and shooting a dog right in front of the couple's 11-year-old daughter.

Officers were originally called out to the scene around 8:20 p.m. for a domestic dispute.

Once inside the home, officers immediately spotted the dead dog. Police say the pet died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The unnamed significant other told officers what had happened and Martinez was then taken into custody.

He's currently in the Tulsa County Jail. He faces counts of cruelty to animals and domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor.
