Detroit police say the woman was mauled while walking on Monday evening, was shot and was taken to a hospital, where she died. The woman’s name wasn’t immediately released. Police responded and searched for the dog, but it wasn’t immediately found.

Detroit police Captain Darin Szilagy says the man lived in the area. Szilagy says he was trying to be a “good Samaritan” and had a license to carry a concealed weapon. Szilagy says it’s a tragic story, but notes “we’re responsible for every round we fire.”

The shooting is under investigation and prosecutors likely will review the case.
