Ventura County sheriff's deputies say they shot and killed a man after he shot and killed a dog.
It happened in Fillmore around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon.
Officers say a witness reported seeing the man with a gun in his belt outside Mountain Vista Elementary School.
The witness took down the man's license plate number and deputies traced it to a home on Blaine Avenue.
That's where officers found 33-year-old Josue Jimenez holding a gun in the front yard.
Deputies shot Jimenez after he opened fire.
But when they went to offer aid they realized Jimenez had fatally shot a pitbull nearby.
Jimenez was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Officers say they also found weapons in his car.
Jimenez had a prior record that included gun violations.
