WICHITA Kansas – The dog can be seen moving in front of the girl and the officer says “OK, we got a dog inside here too…whoa whoa” and then fires his service weapon two times. The footage shows the girl immediately jumping up from the floor and runs in the other room while screaming that her eye has been hit.

Officer Dexter Betts employment with the police department ended in January, just weeks after the shooting.
The video, released to the Wichita Eagle shows Betts firing his gun at the dog. The shot missed the dog and according to Wichita police, the bullet ricocheted. The attorney for the family says a fragment struck the 9-year-old girl in the forehead just above her eye.
In the video released by the DA, body camera footage shows the former officer walking through the home where several children are present. A young girl can be seen sitting on the floor near a couch and a mid-sized black and white dog.
The dog can be seen moving in front of the girl and the officer says “OK, we got a dog inside here too…whoa whoa” and then fires his service weapon two times. The footage shows the girl immediately jumping up from the floor and runs in the other room while screaming that her eye has been hit.
Betts appeared in a Sedgwick County courtroom earlier this month where he pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of aggravated battery. His trial is tentatively set for August.
The attorney for officer Dexter Betts released the following statement Friday regarding the release of the body camera footage of the shooting:
“Officer Betts responded to a 911 call that was highly volatile and presented a real danger for the responding officers’ safety. The 911 caller advised that a firearm had been used in violence in the caller’s house. Officer Betts’ supervisor directed Betts to enter the house and locate that firearm.
Acting in full compliance with the Wichita Police Department’s Policy Manual, Officer Betts did exactly what he was trained to do. The entire situation is unfortunate, but it is still a case of self‐defense. Officer Betts is innocent of the offense charged.
