FBI K-9 killed on 2nd mission in NY standoff

Ape was shot by Kurt Myers as it led the way for officers who stormed an abandoned bar where Myers was hiding early Thursday morning

Associated Press

HERKIMER, N.Y. — The FBI says one of its dogs killed by a gunman following a standoff in upstate New York had just completed its training a month ago and was on its second mission.

Ape was shot by Kurt Myers as it led the way for officers who stormed an abandoned bar where Myers was hiding early Thursday morning. Police say they cornered Myers after he killed four people and wounded two others the day before.

Myers shot at officers and hit Ape. Police returned fire and killed him.

Ape was a 2-year-old Czech German Shepherd that joined the FBI on Feb. 25 after completing a four-month tactical training course.

Ape's body will be taken to Quantico, Va., where the FBI Academy is located and a memorial will be held. Ape's name will be added to a memorial wall there.
