Queens home invasion victim hands over $4,000 after suspect shoots dog

Police say a suspect shot a pet dog during an overnight home invasion in the Cambria Heights section of Queens.

The suspect reportedly demanded money of the homeowner, a man with an extensive criminal record.

When he didn't immediately get the cash, the suspect allegedly shot the victim's dog.

The victim then gave the suspect $4,000, and the gunman fled the scene.

The suspect and an accomplice fled in a black Jeep Cherokee from the 1990s.

No arrests were immediately made.

The condition of the dog is not clear.
