COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Richland County deputies arrested and charged a man after investigators said he shot his dog and left it to die in a wooded area off Whispering Pines Road on Wednesday.

Officials say 25-year-old Robert Bobby Williams and charged him with felony ill treatment to animals.

Investigators say Williams shot the dog because it attacked one of his other dogs.

Deputies who were in the area at the time heard the gunshots and spotted Williams speeding away from the scene.

As they stopped Williams, the deputies say they saw the wounded animal emerge from the wooded area.

Unfortunately, the dog had to be euthanized because of its injuries.

Williams was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
