Oklahoma City police officials confirm undercover officers were bit by a dog while serving a warrant.

Police say the undercover agents were serving a warrant for drugs at a house in the 2100 block of N. Prospect around 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. Officials say the first officer through the door was attacked by a large, 120 lb. pitbull which bit the officer on a protective vest. The second officer was then bit on a holster and part of his leg.

One officer then reportedly shot the dog three times. Officials say the dog died at the scene. One officer was treated at a local hospital and released.

Police arrested Andrew Ingram, 39, at the home on complaints of possession of drug proceeds and possession of drug paraphernalia.

OKCPD has opened a use of force investigation into the shooting.
