A Union City police officer discharged his weapon over the weekend after a deer was struck by a vehicle.
The reporting officer stated he responded to the 800 block of East Todd Street in reference to a deer that had been hit by a vehicle and was laying on a sidewalk. To keep the animal from running away and continuing to suffer, the officer fired one round from his Ruger carbine 9 mm into the head of the animal.
