DENTON, TX, June 29, 2023 – The Denton Police Department’s Special Operations Unit has arrested a suspect in relation to the intentional shooting of a Denton resident’s dog this past April.
On April 12, 2023, Officers responded to the 1000 block of Mack Place to reports of a dog that had been shot in the backyard of a residence. The dog subsequently had to be euthanized due to the significance of the injuries sustained.
Officers were able to obtain information on a possible suspect, who was confirmed to have been in the area shortly after the shooting. Through a comprehensive and detailed investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for 47-year-old Denton resident Aaron Frank. Frank was taken into custody by Denton PD’s Special Operations Unit earlier today for Cruelty to a Non-Livestock Animal.
This investigation is ongoing. If you have any additional information about this crime, please contacted Detective Field at [email protected].
