A Sioux City man accused of shooting and killing his two dogs faces weapons charges.

Jon Holloway was charged Wednesday with reckless use of a firearm and discharging a gun within city limits. Two animal abuse charges were dismissed due to a filing error, but authorities may refile them.

The 51-year-old Holloway is accused of shooting the Labradors Tuesday with a rifle in his backyard. An affidavit says Holloway shot them after ordering them separately into their kennel.

Police say Holloway had been arguing with his sister about the dogs being aggressive.

The city's animal control officers took the dogs. Their bodies will be examined.

Holloway's attorney did not immediately return a message left Wednesday.
