Maybe. It seems like a police K9 in Massachusetts managed to fire a pistol into an occupied dwelling.
Police in Lawrence, MA, were investigating 3 shots fired. They spied a vehicle containing suspects.
The suspect vehicle led police on a high-speed chase. When it stopped, one of the vehicle’s occupants got out and buried something in a snowbank.
The police detained the 3 occupants of the vehicle. The police soon afterwards released a K9, who located the buried object – which turned out to be a firearm. In doing so, however, the K9 managed to discharge the weapon into an occupied dwelling. Thankfully there were no injuries.
The 3 occupants of the vehicle are now facing various charges. No word on whether the K9 was placed on administrative leave pending investigation of a negligent discharge. (smile)
No, I’m not joking – well, except for the “administrative leave pending investigation . . . ” part.
At least, I think that was a joke. With some big-city police departments, you never know. (smile)
