What kind of gun was it? Have the cops recovered any shell casings? Are they asking for tips on people who own similar guns?

Steve - don't be deceived by the headline. My best is that he wasn't a professional dogwalker, nor was he shot at by dog haters. It's more likely that he incidentally was walking a dog when he was shot at.

what kind of gun? - There were two different guns fired that night, one sounded like a shot gun the other sounded like a pistol.
