INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A residential burglary suspect this morning shot and killed Bo, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department canine.

Canine Officer Scott Johnson also shot and wounded the suspect. Johnson had released Bo following a car chase with the burglary suspect found in a Franklin Township home, said Sgt. Paul Thompson, a department spokesman.

Police this afternoon identified the suspect as Clinton Hernandez, 21. He was reported in stable condition at Wishard Hospital with two gunshot wounds to a leg and hip.

The incident began with a 9:23 a.m. call from a resident, who saw an unfamiliar vehicle and items sitting next to it in the driveway of a home in the 6300 block of Moonstruck Parkway. Officers watched the red sport utility vehicle leave and began a pursuit.
