A man in Adams County, Colo. lost his best friend after he says deputies shot his dog three times for “no reason.”

Tragically, Jeff Fisher said police went to his house by mistake. When he opened his door for the deputies, his dog Ziggy ran outside and officers shot and killed him.

“Fisher said Ziggy was his best friend and can’t believe he’s gone,” CBS Denver reports.

“(He went to the door) to see who it was and the police officer shot him three times…They killed my dog for no reason,” he said.

Adams County sheriff’s deputies were reportedly responding to reports of a business alarm going off. A spokesman with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office would not provide any additional details until the investigation is complete.
