A pit bull was shot dead early Sunday morning on the 200 block of Amhurst Avenue in Syracuse.
Syracuse Police report that around 7:40am on Sunday, a house party that ran through the night turned violent because of an argument regarding fees for a disk jockey.
One man involved in the fight, Jamil Washington, was taken to Upstate University Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
The fight spilled onto the street, and a pit bull named 'Chocolate' was brought outside. A black male suspect allegedly pulled a gun, shooting and killing the dog.
Syracuse detectives are now trying to find the man responsible. Anyone with information is asked to call Syracuse Police at 442-5222.
