Members of the public are being asked to avoid an area of Duluth due to an ongoing "dangerous situation" that has already led to the death of a police dog.
Duluth Police Department says the scene is still active in the 2300 block of West 4th Street, to which officers were called at 8:30 p.m. Thursday on a report of a "physical domestic."
Here's the latest as of just after 10 a.m.
When officers arrived Thursday evening, officers learned the suspect had "felony warrants and refused to surrender."
A K9 named Luna was "sent in to apprehend the suspect," with the male suspect firing shots, hitting Luna.
Officers returned fire and retreated from the home, setting up a perimeter. The K9 Luna died a short time later at an emergency veterinary clinic.
At this time, no human officers have been injured. Police say they don't believe the suspect has been injured either.
"The suspect continues to be dangerous, armed, and uncooperative," Duluth PD says.
"This incident is an active, ongoing, and dangerous situation, and the public is asked to stay away from the area."
