Las Vegas Police K-9 Shot and Killed in the Line of Duty: Authorities

A police dog died after he and a suspect were shot Thursday in Las Vegas, authorities said. The condition of the suspect was unknown.

“With heavy hearts we regret to confirm that LVMPD K-9 Nicky was killed in the line of duty today,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said on Twitter about 1:45 p.m. No other officers were injured, KSNV reported.

Few details were immediately available about the shooting, which the department said happened before 12:40 p.m. in the 9800 block of Fast Elk Street.

The male K-9 had returned to active duty in early March after being stabbed with a machete during a police standoff in February, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
