Wichita Falls woman attacked by dogs, officer shot in leg

Wichita Falls_At 2:20 PM officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to a 911 call to 2011 8th Street in reference to a female being attacked by several dogs.  When police responded they discovered Auroa Castro laying in the back yard of her residence with the dogs attacking her.  In an effort to try and get the dogs off of Castro an officer with the WFPD was accidentally shot in the leg.
