    Oklahoma City police lay K9 Kye killed in line of duty to rest

    Posted: Aug 28, 2014 12:55 PM CDT Updated: Aug 28, 2014 12:56 PM CDT By: Jay Dillon, Senior Digital
    The Oklahoma City Police Department and agencies from across the Sooner State gathered to say goodbye to one of their own after Kye the K9 officer was killed in the line of duty.

    From Tulsa to Muskogee to Broken Arrow, officers came from across the state to pay their respects to the K9 who was stabbed to death after tracking down a suspect.

    Kye's partner, Sgt. Ryan Stark, released him Sunday while chasing down 22-year-old Mark Salazar after a chase that ended near Goldsby on I-35. Stark said Kye had caught up to Salazar and he was about to call the dog off when he released Salazar was stabbing the K-9.

    Sgt. Stark pulled his weapon and shot and killed the suspect.

    Kye was a 3-year-old Belgian German sheppard and he had been with the force for approximately two years.

    The stories say that Kye was a 3-year-old Belgian German shepherd and he had been with the force for approximately two years, but I have never heard of a "Belgian German Shepherd" so I think the reporter got that wrong or Kye is a breed the AKC does not recognize here in the USA. Kye must be a black German Shepherd who came from Belgium

    Stark is currently under investigation for shooting and killing the armed suspect who was responsible for Kye’s death, KFOR reports.

    The tragic sequence of events started on Sunday, when cops began a high speed car chase in pursuit of 22-year-old Mark Salazar. A cleaning crew reportedly saw the man break into a car. Salazar led cops on a 30 minute chase before troopers blew out his tires. Salazar crashed the car and tried to make a break for it on foot. Stark released Kye and the dog quickly caught up to Salazar.

    The officer, a 13-year veteran of the force, is on paid administrative leave as authorities study whether he was justified in using deadly force.
    “We know the officer was in close proximity to the suspect when the suspect was stabbing the dog, which places the officer in great danger of the suspect,” said Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson.

    Rest In Peace, K9 Kye.
    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

    I Am the Sheepdog.

    the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks
