Papillion police shot and killed a dog who was doing a dogly duty and protecting his territory. The police were serving a warrant for the dog owner's son. No one was home at the time. The landlord of the property asked police if they wanted her to unlock the door or take the keys. Instead, they used a battering ram to bash in a door, freaked out the dog and shot him twice.
When the owner of the dog arrived, it would be another hour before they released the still-breathing dog to him. By that point, it was too late and the dog died at the vet hospital.
The dog growled but did not bite anybody.
