Cleveland, Ohio --- (WKYC News) Police in Cleveland, Ohio are asking for the public's help identifying a man caught on video shooting a cat.

Danielle Stiegelmeyer, the cat owner, says Jack was more than a family pet; he was the neighborhood cat.

"Blue-eyed, cross-eyed, loved people, absolutely loved people.  He'd see people coming and he'd come up to them," she continued.

When she found him on the side of her garage fighting for his life she quickly rushed him to a veterinarian, but Jack's injuries proved fatal.

Stiegelmeyer then desperately scrolled through hours of home surveillance video to find out what happened to her beloved pet and the answer was disturbing.

Jack's killer is captured on camera petting him just moments before he drew his gun and killed the helpless animal.
