Yankton police say an officer shot a pit bull after the dog bit a runner three times and then charged the officer.
   
Chief Brian Paulsen says the dog bit the runner Monday morning, then became aggressive toward one of the two officers who responded.
   
The dog is being sent to a state lab in Pierre for rabies testing.
   
The runner was treated at a Yankton hospital and released.
