Police kill man after he fatally stabs St. Paul K-9

| No Comments

Police shot and killed a Missouri man in St. Paul Tuesday after the suspect, who had a warrant for his arrest, fatally stabbed a nine-year-old police dog, the Pioneer Press said.

St. Paul police entered a house in the 700 block of Aurora Avenue after 1 p.m. searching for Alden Anderson, 32, who was wanted on a criminal sexual conduct warrant in Ramsey County.

Anderson was found armed with a knife in the basement by officers, including the K-9 team. It was in the basement that he stabbed Kody, a 9-year-old police dog, numerous times, police said.

St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos said that police dogs are treated the same as human officers--especially in a situation of danger. He added that if a dog is harmed, there's a good chance that the officer will be harmed, too.

After officers recognized the threat to their own safety, they fatally shot Anderson, the Star Tribune said.
