MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) -- Midwest City police say they won't cite a man who shot a pit bull terrier that was attacking a meter reader.

Jason Fish was reading a meter for Oklahoma Gas and Electric Friday when police say the dog attacked him. A neighbor heard Fish screaming and shot and killed the animal with a shotgun.

Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes says Fish was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Clabes says the dog's owner -- Terry Almon -- was cited for harboring a vicious animal.
