FORT BEND COUNTY— A man who claimed his dog was shot to death by two people riding four-wheel ATVs made the whole thing up, according to investigators.

Shane Hilliard told Fort Bend County deputies he was walking his dog near the Grand Mission subdivision on New Year’s Eve when someone shot the dog. He said the riders were wearing helmets so he didn’t get a good description.

After investigating his story, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office determined Hilliard lied about the incident. They believe he’s the one who shot the dog.

Hilliard is charged with cruelty to animals and filing a false report.

He surrendered late Tuesday and was later freed after posting bond.
