However, he was let go by police claiming self-defense. 

"This Easter weekend a man delivering groceries for Instacart shot & killed our precious Oliver," the Law & Order alum wrote. "He got out of his car, delivered the food & THEN shot our dog. 

"Our ring camera was charging in the house, which he saw & then knew he wasn’t being recorded. The police let him go b/c he claimed “self defense”. 

He did not have a scratch or bite on him nor were his pants torn."

"He shot our dog with my daughters & myself at home & just kept saying, “yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah I did.”
