The attempt to shoot Dog the Bounty Hunter: Check out the police call

Yesterday, we lamented the lowlife, criminal scum that took a shot at Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, A&E reality-series star and erstwhile Westword profile/tribute subject. Now, has posted a YouTube clip featuring police traffic about the report, much of it erroneous (Dog was first thought to be packing a machine gun), and images from the scene. Best snapshot: The cops who responded to the call posing for a photo with the big Dog. As the video above confirms, everybody loves a happy ending.
