Innocent Bystander, K-9 Officer Gunned Down in Pendleton

K-9 Officer Kilo

The law enforcement community is mourning the loss of a K-9 officer today as a family and community also comes to grips with the loss of a person who was just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Anderson K-9 Officer Kilo was gunned down in the line of duty last night in Pendleton.  Also killed was, John Shull, an innocent bystander who, according to the Indianapolis Star, was simply driving by the scene of the shooting when he was struck by a bullet.  The Star reports that Officer Marty Dulworth, Kilo's partner, was shot in both legs and is now at St. Vincent Hospital.  The alleged shooter, Kenneth Bailey, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Star.

My thoughts go out to the family and friends of John Shull, and I also send thoughts out to the Anderson Police Department and everyone in the law enforcement community over the loss of Officer Kilo. Get well soon Officer Dulworth.
