Officers fatally shoot man who killed police dog


Authorities shot and killed a Missouri man after he allegedly fatally stabbed a St. Paul police dog.

   Members of the North Star Fugitive Task Force were looking for the suspect on a first-degree criminal sexual conduct warrant. Members of the task force had gone to a St. Paul home to arrest him Tuesday afternoon when they found him armed with a knife in the basement.

   Police say the suspect fatally stabbed police dog Kody. Officers then fatally shot the suspect. No one else was hurt.

   The suspect's name was not immediately released.

   The task force includes St. Paul police, U.S. Marshal Service deputy marshals and Ramsey County sheriff's deputies.

   Kody was 9 years old and had been with the department for seven years. Names of the officers were not released.
