REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) - A shot was fired at a school playground in Redford Township Monday night, frightening many and nearly killing a beloved family pet.

Ray took his dog Nelson to Fisher Elementary School.

"I saw kids in the playground so, kids love my dog, I let him off his leash and vest," says Ray.

According to Ray, Nelson was not bothering but he did notice a dog along the fence line which was along a couple walking the track.

"He ran towards this couple. I told them - I yelled, 'He's fine! He's fine!'" Ray says.

"As he ran, he's building up speed. He's coming full speed at the couple. ... All we heard was, you know, a "pop," says witness Daniel Sharpe.

"I thought it was just fireworks," says witness Henry Edwards.

But rather, it was a firearm belonging to the man who was walking the track - and it was fired.

Nelson took a bullet. He was shot in the shoulder.

"If they would have say, 'Hey, secure your dog on a leash. We're walking around the track,' I would have definitely put the leash back on," Ray says. He thought the people at the playground were comfortable with his dog being off the leash because he had been playing with him off leash for more than a few minutes.

"To the gentleman's credit, he did call the police right after he fired his shot," Ray says.

"The police came. They actually gave a citation to the guy with the dog," says Edwards.

That may have some hound lovers heated, but that was a lesson Ray learned the hard way because a sign at the park says no pets are allowed in the first place.

Nelson has had surgery and may be coming home as early as Wednesday.

Police tell Fox 2's Andrea Isom the shooter was also cited because, although he has a permit to have a concealed weapon, you cannot have that weapon on school grounds.

If I ever needed to defend myself somewhere where I'm not supposed to have a firearm or not supposed to carry it a certain way and I get in trouble for it, my official reply would be F U.

Like people getting fired from their jobs that needed to use a firearm to defend themselves.  _i_

that's gonna suck.
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. Luke 11:21

Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."  Luke 22:36
