An IMPD officer has been nominated for the Medal of Bravery after saving an elderly woman’s life following a dog attack.
Officer Robert Carver was called to a house near 58th Street and Rural Avenue Sunday.
When he arrived, he saw 86-year-old Veta Snyder lying on the ground, the pit bull on top of her legs.
The officer tried to subdue the animal with pepper spray but the dog lunged forward and tried to attack him. Carver fired three shots, killing the dog.
At last check, Snyder was listed in good condition at Wishard Memorial Hospital.
