SPOKANE, Wash. - Travis Scott said all it took was a few minutes and they were gone.
"The dude came in my house, put a gun to my head and asked for something," Scott said. "I said I don't have anything, you need to get out of my house, there's a kid here."
Two masked men entered his home around 9 p.m. Tuesday night as he was sitting on the couch with his girlfriend and her baby.
"I chased them out. I took a shot at them with my twelve gauge, well not at them, but toward them to try to scare them and get them out of here," Scott said.
That worked. The bad guys got off his block, but that is when his pit bull Guardian got involved.
"He chased them down that way," Scott said. "I couldn't see him for a second, then I heard them shooting and I heard him whining."
Just like that Guardian got shot three times and the bad guys took off. Shortly thereafter, neighbors rushed the dog to the vet. Dr. Sandy Taylor said that Guardian is expected to make a full recovery and he may actually go home Wednesday night.
Travis Scott said he has no idea why this happened or who is responsible for it. Police say the suspects fled the scene in a white, older van with bi-fold doors on the side. The van had no windows and had a faded Shock sticker on the back. Detectives from the Major Crimes Unit continue to investigate. Police ask that if anyone has information about the incident to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
