Lakewood Police are searching for a man and woman who are suspected of shooting and killing a dog.

According to a release from the department, police responded to calls of shots fired near the intersection of 12th and Teller on August 1. When officers arrived to the scene, they found a female pit bull mix who died of apparent gunshot wounds.
