BORNE, Texas (KXAN) - An off-duty police officer accused of shooting a neighbor's cat last month will not be prosecuted or charged.
WOAI, the NBC affiliate in San Antonio, said Borne police officer Lance DeLeon was not indicted by a Kendall County grand jury Monday.
The cat's owners were reportedly outraged after hearing the news.
"I'm just in shock that he could walk free as if he didn't shoot our pet," Natalie Brunner told WOAI.
Brunner said she saw DeLeon standing over her cat, Bobby, on May 21. She said Bobby had arrow sticking out of him.
South Texas Veterinary Specialists treated the cat for a punctured lung and a broken leg .
"The grand jury heard all the evidence and they inserted a lot of common sense into a situation that was very emotional to a lot of people," DeLeon's attorney, David Parent said in a statement. "We believe they did the right thing."
DeLeon remains on administrative leave, according to WOAI.
