Hearing there is some trouble in Hill n Dale this afternoon... I'm told that our K9 KILO has been shot... I sure hope this report is wrong.

SELLERSBURG, Ind. -- Police in Sellersburg, Ind. are responding to a report of a man who has barricaded himself in a home.
Details are still limited at this time, but police and a SWAT team have surrounded a home in the Hill n Dale subdivision in Sellersburg.

I've heard it was an officer shot. They're en route to U of L ER. I'm going to walk over there and poke around.


Yes, I've heard this too now... ugly stuff... I hope the officer is going to be ok.

SELLERSBURG — A Clark County Sheriff's Department officer has been shot in the leg following a standoff at a Sellersburg home, according to an Indiana State Police spokeswoman. The officer's name was not immediately released and Sheriff Danny Rodden declined to comment when contacted by phone.

I don't understand why he had to go into the house. I would like to thank you for always showing kindness to animals . My animals mean everything to me. I sure hope this beautiful animal didn't have to suffer also.

Does anyone know why this K-9 Officer was sent in alone-unprotected? He was wearing a bullet proof vest but I thought they always had a human with them.

The police should have known they were sending him in to his death, to face a crazy bi-polar psycho capable of anything who had already shot the robot out (I assume).

They are supposed to charge this idiot with killing a K-9 Police Officer in the line of duty. When someone does that is as serious as if the dog were a human police officer....it is to me too.

I was so upset when I heard that they saw him go in and heard shots and never saw him come out.

Some tv stations were insensitive enough to not even mention Kilo at first.

After I saw pictures of him it made me even sadder, was he a Shephard or a Belgian Malinois? Those Malinois are awesome, one went in after Ben Ladin. I have been wanting one but to get one already trained like the police dogs are cost about $25,000 to $30,000.

They said something about establishing a memorial fund for Kilo but if the officer decides to get another K-9 I don't think they are, guess it will go towards getting the other dog.
At first they were saying the dog was a State Police dog at the beginning of the stand off.


RIP sweet Kilo-you did your job well and with a brave heart...you will be missed, even by those who were never lucky enough to know you.

In hindsight I'm sure they wish they hadn't sent him in... the perp shooting the dog is something that seems they should have anticipated. Nobody walked the dog in because it was obviously such a high risk situation...

And for that reason alone, the person who made the decision ...if they have a heart at all...will have to live with the guilt the rest of his life.
I was always under the impression these dogs responded instantly to verbal commands from their handlers. What was Kilo supposed to do..disarm the guy, handcuff him and drag him out by himself?
I bet some hotshot commander with a higher ranking than the handler demanded that Kilo be sent in alone.
I bet the handler is broken hearted right now and probably very angry and rightfully so.

The ISP K-9 program is run on donations only. Any money donated to the Kilo fund will go to help fund training of new K-9's for the State Police. Kilo was stationed at the Sellersburg post. He was the only K-9 Officer for this post.

The rest of the story...

ISP Trooper Nathan Abbott and his K-9 Kilo later arrived at the rear of the residence.

“Trooper Abbot gave repetitive verbal commands that he was going to release his K-9,” according to the affidavit. “Once the K-9 was released, Trooper Abbot again gave loud verbal commands that the dog had been released.”

K-9 Kilo then went down a hallway of the home, while six policemen made entry into the residence.

“As officers were inside the residence, shots were fired from a back room where K-9 Kilo had went toward,” according to the affidavit.

Whelan advised that at this time, “rounds came through the drywall toward the officers.”

Abbot called for Kilo, but was unable to get the dog to respond after the shots were fired. Kilo was later found to be deceased from Priddy’s gunfire, despite the bullet-resistant vest the K-9 was wearing.

Thanks for the information Quaser, I do not get the paper so would not have known any of this. At least the sweet thing was not alone in that house when it happened. Appreciate your posting.

About Kilo's memorial service...

Troopers hold emotional memorial service to honor fallen canine officer

By GARY POPP
gary.popp@newsandtribune.com

NEW ALBANY —

Indiana State Police Trooper Nathan Abbott said his longtime partner made the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty at a standoff last month.

“Kilo saved my life and the lives of my friends that day,” Abbott said, remarking on the events in Sellersburg that also resulted in Clark County Sheriff’s Detective Chris Proctor receiving a bullet wound to his knee.

Kilo — an ISP K-9 and the only service dog killed on the job since the agency’s inception in 1932 — was honored Monday at a service in New Albany. Kilo was fatally shot June 24 during a nearly 10-hour police standoff at a Sellersburg home.

I caught that on the tv last night and thought it was a very touching ceremony.
It was awesome to see the long line of Canine Officers sitting at attention for their fallen comrade.
The only thing....I HATE cremation. ...it is as if the person or creature never existed and there is nowhere to go and pay respect.
To each his own though.
