The police heard the shots and came to investigate. They shot the other two dogs. Then they arrested the private shooter. It seems that he had not registered his gun.

Not being a total imbecile, the District’s prosecuting attorney decided not to bring the man to trial for a felony — actually, a total of seven criminal violations of the law. He knew that this would make the District look silly. The jury would not convict. So, he had an idea: just fine the guy $1,000. That makes an extra $1,000 for the District. No muss, no fuss.
