Robbery Suspect Kills Pursuing Police K9

Associated Press

December 01, 2010

GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Authorities in New Jersey say a robbery suspect killed a police dog by throwing it into traffic.

Gloucester Township police say the 3 1/2-year-old German shepherd named Schultz was trying to apprehend the man around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. Police say the man grabbed the animal and tossed him onto the busy roadway, where it was struck. The suspect ran off.

Police Chief Harry Earle says the man was one of two people suspected of robbing a local restaurant. Both men remained at large Wednesday.

Further details on the encounter and the search were expected to be announced at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.
