A man wanted for armed robbery in North Carolina and Palm Beach County was shot and killed Friday by sheriff's deputies in Jupiter, after a shootout.
A K9, 4-year-old Casper, was shot and underwent surgery, but is expected to survive. Casper has been with PBSO for two years and has been assigned to may presidential details. It is unknown if he will be back to work following the shooting. There is no word if the injury in his hind legs and hip will affect his mobility long term.
