Investigators say a dog was shot and killed while a narcotics search warrant was being executed in the 900 block of 4th Street near Fremont Avenue.

Officials tell us the search warrant was part of an on-going investigation by the Kentwood Police Department.  Grand Rapids officers assisted at the scene.

    I am going to hope that details reveal that the police serving the warrant did not just bust into the house. I don’t know about you, but I have protective dogs whose job is to protect against those who aggressively enter the home. It would be an awful shame to hear that the dog was shot doing its job trying to protect the family. I am not commenting on the illegal activity of which the warrant was being served for. I simply hope that the killing of the dog could not be avoided. Maybe we’ll learn that the dog’s owners refused to relocate or restrain the dog(?). Details regarding the investigation will be appreciated.

    The thundering sound of claps of hands is deafening In our home tonight. Great job GRPD: #1 For carrying out a warrant to investigate and prosecute those who are peddling poison in our neighborhoods. #2 For protecting yourselves against the dog so that tomorrow you can make more raids on people peddling poison in our community.

      Real talk the dog was a puppy and a loving one she want made to hate anyone…….. And if grpd was so called doing they job they wouldn’t have got into the place and then shoot the dog in the back of the house!!!!!!!! And it was wrong for the other bullshit that was going on in the home it’s really none of no one business bc for one it’s more then just that house on the west…… if u don’t know then don’t speak on it.. ………

    As I said in my previous post, rounds of applause to GRPD. Keep going after the lazy dope man poisoning our neighborhoods. Wonder what the stats are on drug search warrants where a vicious uncared for dog resides with the obviously uneducated mopes? How could I make the statement they are uneducated? See Resa’s post above and attempt to stagger through the grammar…
