Police dog shot and killed during 25-hour standoff

A Nebraska police dog was shot and killed after a mentally troubled man who was armed barricaded himself in a home and kept cops at bay for 25 hours, officials said Sunday.

The dog, Kobus, was killed when he was sent into the home during the standoff to check on the whereabouts of Mark L’Heureux, 59, around 4 p.m. Saturday, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

L’Heureux eventually surrendered.

“Kobus was a hero,” Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said, according to WOWT-TV. “He provided a great service at the scene of the dangerous standoff.”  More
