LOS ANGELES — A Lakewood man was charged Jan 14 with six felony counts, including animal cruelty, in connection with the fatal shooting of a dog, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Shane Michael Dubyak faces one count each of cruelty to an animal; fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving recklessly; possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, heroin and a revolver; and unlawful possession of ammunition as well as two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.

The case includes an allegation that Dubyak used a revolver in the commission of animal cruelty.

Arraignment is scheduled Jan 14 in Department 5 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Downey Branch.

On Jan. 5, the defendant reportedly shot a 15-year-old terrier named Artie that was left under his care, in the 16400 block of Phoebe Avenue in La Mirada, prosecutors said. On Jan. 10, police spotted Dubyak and he fled when they attempted to detain him, prosecutors added.

According to ABC “Detectives launched an investigation after the incident was captured on surveillance video, showing someone shooting the dog Sunday before driving off.”

Prosecutors are requesting the defendant be held with no bail for violation of probation terms in which Dubyak pleaded no contest to one felony count of identity theft with a prior.

If convicted as charged on the current case, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 14 years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Norwalk Station.
