Police dog finds and fires a gun
A Massachusetts police dog searching for a handgun not only found the weapon but fired it with his paw, a police chief said Sunday.No one was injured when K-9 search dog Ivan discharged a bullet as he indicated the gun's location, Lawrence Police Chief John Romero told CNN.
After the men exited the vehicle, Ivan's handler, Essex County Sheriff's Lt. John Pickles, commanded the dog to search for a gun after a shell casing was found in the backseat of the car, Romero said.
Ivan is trained "to paw" if he finds something.
