The dog was shot in the paw and was taken to Angell Animal Medical Center and is recovering.

Estrada said Thursday night that he had no reports of any other injuries or additional ­details about the incident.

Part of Beauford Lane, a tiny street of well-kept multifamily houses, was sealed off with ­police tape after the shooting, and several officers were standing in the road.

Officers also spoke to residents in the sealed-off area.
