Indiana

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a suspect died and a police officer and a police dog also were shot during a shootout that ensued from serving an arrest warrant.

They say 30-year-old Rodney Ross shot at police and then fled a South Bend home as officers attempted to arrest him Tuesday morning, then died in the shootout when police found him hours later.

Police say one officer received a leg injury and was treated at a hospital before being released Tuesday night.

A police dog named Luna also was shot and she was transported to North Central Veterinary Emergency Center in Westville for treatment.
