A Toledo Police K-9 was shot and killed and a man died Wednesday after the dog and its partner chased a pair of suspected car thieves into a vacant house in East Toledo.

A news conference is scheduled today to address the fatal shootings of the K-9 and the man who police say shot the dog. One suspect died and police apprehended the other after the dog was shot.

The last fatal shooting by Toledo police occurred May 23 of that year when officers shot Thomas Bean, 43, multiple times as he stood over a woman in the 1000 block of Page Street.

Officers said that Bean was pointing a 12-gauge shotgun at the woman’s face, then turned it toward them after they told him to drop the weapon, drawing their fire.

The shotgun proved to be unloaded, although police reported finding shotgun shells in his house afterward.
