A Bexar County Sheriff's deputy shot himself in the foot Tuesday night while trying to fight off an attacking pit bull, officials said.

Deputies raided a house on Oak Chase on the northeast side close to 7 p.m. Tuesday. The dog charged at the officers. One pulled his gun to shoot the pit bull and slipped. The gun went off, deputies said.

The officer, whose identity has not been released, was hit in the foot. He was taken to an area hospital for surgery. Investigators said he is expected to recover.

The dog was killed, officers said.

Four men were arrested on drug charges. Officers said they found cocaine and marijuana at the home.

Twelve other pit bulls were taken into custody by animal control, investigators said.
