Portland, Ore., officer wounded, dog killed in shootout with burglary suspect

A Portland, Ore., police dog sicked on a burglary suspect was fatally shot early Wednesday, and his handler was wounded.

The Oregonian (http://bit.ly/1gBdSXc) reports three suspects are in custody, including one who was the object of a manhunt in southwest Portland.

Chief Mike Reese said officers saw three people coming from a uniform shop and flee in an SUV. A chase ended when the SUV crashed into a utility pole.

Reese says an officer directed his dog to "Take that suspect!" and there was a shootout. The man was captured three hours later.

The German shepherd was found beneath a hedge near the shooting scene. The wounded officer is expected to recover.

The dog was wearing a harness but not a ballistic vest.
