SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Police Department’s SWAT team raided a South Sacramento home searching clues in a gang shooting and ended up discovering a Pit Bull ring.

Officers busted through a window in a home on 71st Street this morning.  Officers were at the home serving a search warrant at the home looking for automatic weapons when they were bombarded with a barrage of pit bulls.

Animal control officers were called out and removed more than a dozen dogs from the home.  Officers say some of the dogs were vicious and that there had been complaints about the dogs.

“It wouldn’t be uncommon if you’ve got this many dogs in a situation like this that they would be fighting them,” said Sacramento Police Sgt. D.T. Martin

Animal control is still investigating the situation.  The condition of the dogs is not known.

Police did not find any weapons in the home but did find evidence of drug use.  Three people were taken into custody.
