Police officers may have had the wrong address when they arrived at an Oklahoma family's home to serve an arrest warrant.
And from there, things only got more wrong.
Eli Malone was celebrating his fifth birthday with his family, as well as his best friend, a dog named Opie.
The kids had just gone inside for ice cream when police showed up.
They heard a gunshot outside.
Looking out the window, Eli reportedly said, "Mama, something's wrong with Opie."
Two more gunshots from a high-powered rifle.
"He (Opie) was over here kicking and gasping for air," the boy's mother, Vickie Malone, told Fox25 News.
