This was an excerpt that was published after the article I posted above.
In the attached article, the Arizona Daily Star reported on the officer involved shooting that followed the killing of our service dog, Ivan. In this article the reporters mischaracterized some very crucial details about the incident. In particular, the article claimed that "Officer Chris Fenoglio released his K-9 in an effort to keep the man from killing himself". This is not an accurate description of the incident. In fact, Officer Fenoglio released Ivan after seeing the armed suspect approaching several officers while he was holding a large firearm to his side and slightly behind his back, concealing the gun from the officers he was approaching. At no time did Officer Fenoglio observe the suspect lift the gun to his own head nor indicate that he intended to shoot himself.
