On Wednesday, 07-18-18 at approximately 3216 hours, a call for service was received regarding a robbery from the 7-Eleven store located in the 300 block of E. Platte Ave. Officers arrived on scene within a few minutes of the call and observed the suspect leaving in a vehicle.

The suspect became stuck in an adjacent drive-through and intentionally struck a police car in an effort to get away. The suspect then got out of his vehicle and attempted to run on foot. The suspect was sprayed with OC (pepper) spray and tazed, both of which had minimal impact on the suspect. He continued to resist and fight with multiple officers, assaulting one officer who sustained minor injuries.

His injures are being evaluated at this time but are not believed to be serious. The store clerk also sustained injures that are not believed to be serious.

Title
900 Aviation Way
Location
During the early morning hours on 7/13/18 Police Service Dog (PSD) Remme (Remy) was on duty with his handler, Officer A. Genta. At approximately 0200 hours, both were at the CSPD Hangar. PSD Remme was allowed to exit his marked patrol vehicle to go for one of his nightly breaks.

While running around the Hangar yard, as he has done countless times before, PSD Remme sustained an injury that caused him to collapse in pain. PSD Remme was transported CD3 to an emergency veterinary specialist.

Later that morning, PSD Remme was seen by a Veterinary Neurologist. After extensive medical testing, it was determined that PSD Remme had experienced an explosive herniation of a disk in his spinal column. A small piece of the disk broke free when the herniation occurred and was sent flying into the spinal cord. When this occurred, PSD Remme was immediately paralyzed from just below his shoulders, down through his back and into his hind legs.

After consulting with the specialists, it was determined that PSD Remme would never be able to work again and had his handler chosen surgery, there was only a small chance that PSD Remme would ever walk again. It was then that PSD Remme's handler made the decision to humanely euthanize PSD Remme.

The CSPD K9 Unit would like to thank Dr. Rainier Ko and his team for the outstanding care and compassion that PSD Remme and his handler received during this difficult and unexpected time. Dr. Ko and his staff exceeded expectations by far.

Disturbance
Title
1300 N. Academy Blvd
Location
On 07/15/18 at approximately 0806 hours, the Colorado Springs Communications Center received a call from on duty Colorado Springs Fire Department personnel about a male subject that was walking southbound in the 1300 block of N. Academy Blvd carrying a handgun. This male subject then fired two shots from the handgun in an unknown direction. Officers responded to the location and began searching the area for the suspect. Officers contacted and conducted interviews with potential witnesses. Suspect information was developed, and officers later learned that the male party that possibly fired the handgun was at an apartment complex in the 3600 block of Galley Road and that he had an active felony warrant out for his arrest. Officers located the specific apartment and confirmed the male was inside. Officers contained the area, and had the uninvolved occupants exit the apartment. The male suspect refused to exit the apartment at first, but after a short period of time exited the apartment and was taken into custody on the active arrest warrant. Galley Road was shut down during the incident, but has since reopened. At this time, a search warrant is being applied for the apartment and the investigation into the shots fired call for service is ongoing. There were no injuries reported at this time.
