Police: 2 men shoot dog, steal medical marijuana

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Police say two men armed with handguns robbed a man in his Lansing home, shot a dog and fled after stealing money and medical marijuana.

Lansing police Sgt. Del Kostanko says the robbery happened about 9 p.m. Tuesday on the city's southwest side.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://on.lsj.com/1mrALz3 ) the men approached the home, knocked on the door and identified themselves as police. Kostanko says the men shot the dog, which was nursing puppies, and then ransacked the house.

Four children were reported to be at the home at the time, but they were believed to have been asleep. Police say the robbery wasn't random.

Investigators are seeking tips from the public.
