Wednesday evening, around 9:30 p.m., a police check degenerated in Tarterêts, in Corbeil-Essonnes (Essonne).
To help a colleague bitten by an attack dog released by a neighborhood group, two officials from the territorial security brigade used their service weapon, touching the animal.
The scene took place in front of a grocery store on rue Gustave-Courbet.
"The staff proceeded to the arrest of a man holding several research sheets", indicates the departmental direction of public security.
Quickly, a group of individuals approaches.
“They tried to oppose the arrest,” continues the DDSP.
Several means of collective defense have been used to evade aggression.
Faced with the tense situation, officials first use tear gas.
"An individual released his dog on a police officer who was bitten twice on the leg", continues the departmental management.
The scene, filmed by residents of the neighborhood from a balcony, was immediately posted on social networks.
After five shots, the dog moaned and then fled.
According to our information, the animal has been hit on several occasions.
The video ends with insults addressed to the police.

“They are ready to do anything to oppose controls, reacts Guillaume Roux of the SGP Police 91 Unit union. A dog is considered a weapon by destination.
We came close to the drama but we are finally doing well.
We are calling for exemplary sanctions.
"Anything that can damage our ranks is used"
The same feeling for the Alliance Police Nationale 91 union: "The bites went through the reinforced pants used for maintaining order," adds the departmental secretary, Claude Carillo.
Colleagues experience violence on a daily basis in the field.
Anything that can damage our ranks is used.
We give them full support and wish the injured policeman a speedy recovery.
Examined by a doctor from the medico-legal consultation unit (UCMJ), the police officer got away with five days of total incapacity for work (ITT).
