FBI Dog on Just 2nd Mission Killed by Gunman
Police and Law Enforcement News

A sad story comes out of upstate New York.

An FBI dog named Ape was killed several days ago as agents and police attempted to take a murdered into custody.

The pup was on his second mission having been on active duty for just two weeks.

From the New York Times:

The gunman, who was suspected of already killing four people and shooting at police officers, was holed up inside an abandoned bar in upstate New York.

He had made no contact with law enforcement officials for hours and the belief was that he was armed and dangerous.

A police robot equipped with a camera was ready, but its use may have been limited because the gunman’s hiding place was littered with debris.

So a tactical dog named Ape, equipped with a camera, went into the building first on Thursday, followed by agents with the State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Ape, a Czech German Shepherd, was shot in the chest just as he breached the doorway.

Officers returned fire, killing the gunman, Kurt R. Myers, and then turned to try to save Ape. They performed CPR on the dog as he was rushed in an armored vehicle to a nearby veterinary office.

“We were trying to do everything we could to try to save its life,” said Dr. Emily M. Green, one of the veterinarians at Herkimer Veterinary Associates who worked on Ape.

But he died a short time after he arrived.

Ape is the fourth police dog to die in the line of duty this year.
