Two vicious pit bulls at the residence were encountered during the service of the search warrant, one of the dogs biting a deputy. The residents were unable to control the dogs as they charged authorities. Detectives were forced to shoot both of the dogs in order to protect themselves.

The deputy that was bitten was treated and released. Rebecca Medina was at the residence at the time of the search warrant service and was arrested.
