VIDEO: Pennsylvania K-9 Fatally Stabbed, Suspect Shot and Killed

A man was shot and killed, and a K-9 officer was stabbed and killed in Wilkinsburg, PA, on Sunday.

Port Authority Police say it began when Bruce Kelley Jr. and his father, Bruce Kelley Sr., got into a fight around 3:30 p.m.

They escaped officers once, and eventually Port Authority Police caught up with them near the Hamnett Place bus stop on the East Busway.

Police say Bruce Kelley Jr. refused orders and when using a stun gun didn’t work, they released K-9 Officer Aren in an effort to capture Kelley.

“At the time they released the dog on him, he had a knife and he stabbed the dog and the dog went down. Then officers shot and killed the man,” Supt. Charlie Moffat with County Police told KDKA TV.

R.I.P. you have done your job. I am hoping that the officers did not know the suspect had a knife before releasing the K-9. A K-9 is more than property of the agency and should not be sacrificed for fear of using deadly force on a suspect. A K-9 is a valuable partner and asset to the officer, other officers and the public and their lives matter, more than the trash they are trying to apprehend.

Seems like every other day there is a dead K9. God speed little fellow.

I echo the thoughts of J. Johnson in his very exact words. To all K-9 handlers out there please pay attention to what he has said. OK is right and seems lately the death of Police K-9 seem to be on the rise which raises a lot questions as to why. K-9 Ajax RIP and as for the officers who handled the final ending of Bruce Kelley Jr., Good Job!
