Police Investigating After K9 Officer Shot Near Edmond

Posted: Updated:
EDMOND, Oklahoma -

A Boley Police K-9 officer that’s only been in service a month took a bullet Thursday morning to the mouth in Oklahoma County.

Boley Police say the two-year-old German Shepherd named Emmitt and his partner were on their way to train when the officer had to pull over on Waterloo, just east of Midwest Blvd. The officer let Emmitt out on his leash for a few minutes because he had been acting sick. The officer then heard a loud crack and heard Emmitt wince in pain. The dog had been shot in the mouth.

Emmitt underwent surgery Thursday at Blue Pearl 24-7 Animal Clinic in Oklahoma City. Boley Police say eventually the animal will be okay.

If you would like to donate to Emmitt's recovery, you can contact the BluePearl Pet Hospital at 405-749-6989.

An investigation into who is responsible has begun.
