'You k!lled my best friend!' owner shouts; Austin police chief apologizes on air during morning talk radio show

Chilling video has surfaced of the moment a Texas cop responding to an emergency call at the wrong address shot and k!lled a man's beloved dog.

The officer’s police cruiser dashboard camera captured the event, which happens out of view.

Austin cop Thomas Griffin is heard shouting "Get your dog!" barely a second before firing a single fatal shot at Michael Paxton's Blue Heeler, Cisco, on Saturday afternoon.

"What are you doing? What did you shoot my dog for," Paxton is heared yelling hysterically. "I live here!"

"Oh my God, I can't believe you just k!lled my dog," he says. "I need to get him to the vet. What are you doing here?"

Griffin explains to Paxton he's been called about a disturbance. However, as it turned out, he was at the wrong house.

Paxton's neighbors were f!ghting and later told the Digital Texan they were the ones Griffin was meant to see.

The 21-minute recording also captured Griffin and Paxton arguing about what happened after two other officers, one of them Griffin's supervisor, show up at the scene.

Griffin is heard saying the dog lunged at him. Paxton disagrees, and says the dog just ran toward him.

"My best friend," Paxton fumes. "You k!lled my f---ing best friend."

The sad tale became national news after Paxton, 40, launched a Facebook page, "Justice for Cisco."

The page had more than 65,000 "likes" Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, Austin police chief Art Acevedo called in to a local radio show while Paxton was on the air to apologize.

"I know the pain's real. We all love our pets," Acevedo said on KLBJ's "Dudley and Bob Morning Show."

"My heart goes out to him. I think if you ask everybody in the department, believe it or not, we're animal lovers, just like everybody else," he added.

Acevedo also suggested Griffin and Paxton should get together to bury the hatchet.

Paxton told the chief he appreciated the apology.

"To hear that from you, it does mean a lot to me," he said.

Acevedo said an investigation into the shooting was underway - standard practice whenever an officer fires his gun.

Austin police policy says an officer can use deadly force against an animal if it "appears to pose an imminent threat" to the officer's safety, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Throughout the ordeal, Paxton has said he's not "out to badmouth" Austin police, according to the blog Austinist, and posted a message on his Facebook page slamming commenters who insulted cops.

Several listeners who called into the radio show after the apology said Griffin should be punished.

I'm about to cry at work. I love my dogs like I do my family, because to me that is exactly what they are. I have no kids, but can still attest to the love I receive from my four legged ladies each and every day.

Very sad. I'm about to add another like to his FB page.

Fixed it. There's like 5 good cops in the world and I wouldn't want to see them die over the nonsense done by their fellow officers.

this fu*kin guy.. starts off with about 3 different fu*k up mistakes, THEN persistently berates the man after the fact?! seriously fu*k this piece of sh*t. "der why wasnt yer dog on a leash? ... how am i supposed to know?" dumb motherfu*ker clearly you don't know sh*t which is way you shouldnt be allowed so much as a squirt gun, let alone bustin out your glock and poppin off animals when you arent even at the right location.

had he shown some immediate remorse and admittance to wrongdoing this wouldnt have been so bad but this clown couldnt even act human about it
