Suspect kills police dog in shootout outside mall on Christmas Eve, police say

Police in Wellington, Florida, hailed a police dog as a hero for saving the lives of officers in a shootout outside a shopping mall packed with last-minute shoppers on Christmas Eve. The dog, Cigo, was shot and killed by the suspect, police said.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said law enforcement learned a person wanted in connection with a recent attempted murder was at the Mall at Wellington Green Monday night.

The tactical team witnessed multiple suspects with the man wanted for alleged murder on surveillance video, and the decision was made to try and take them into custody when they got to their vehicle outside just after 5 p.m.
