Police say a Dauphin County man is dead and the K-9 he allegedly shot is being treated at a veterinary hospital Friday night.
An officer shot the man on the run from cops, after the suspect shot and wounded the dog.
Everything started around the corner off Nyes and Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton Township.
Police say overnight one man stabbed another and shot at the victim’s car as he drove himself to a hospital.
That led police to search for that man later Friday afternoon at a home off Jonestown Road, near Nyes Road in Lower Paxton Township.
But he took off, armed and hid inside a home. Then the suspect took off running again.
"They chased the suspect into this wooded area behind us here next to the nursery and set up a perimeter,” explained Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico. “They received help from other departments including the Harrisburg Department’s K-9 unit."
Hiding in the bushes, the armed man on the run shot and wounded the K-9.
That's when a Lower Paxton Twp. Police Officer shot the suspect, who was taken to a hospital by ambulance but later died.
Right across the street from the shooting is Paxtonia Elementary School, police tell us they don't believe it was placed on lockdown as fortunately school was out already. There were though, a few kids around playing.
The K-9's name is Zeke. Paramedics rushed him onto a helicopter that flew Zeke to Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center in Cumberland County.
Police say he's a strong pup and expect he'll pull through.
"It's very emotional, they do great work,” DA Marsico stated. “They are there with their partners, officers, every day."
The officer who shot the suspect is okay. He will be on administrative leave until the investigation is completed.
