Police in Duluth are searching for the vandal behind defacing a memorial dedicated to a police pup who was murdered on the line of duty during a domestic dispute, Your Content has learned.

“I was informed today that the K9 Haas Memorial plaque located at the GND REC dog park was vandalized.” Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken said Monday night.

“The GND Development Alliance is offering a $250 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of those individuals responsible for the damage. Please contact the Duluth Police Department with any information at 218-730-5020. You may remain anonymous.”

K9 Haas was shot and killed during a barricade of a domestic violence suspect in the 1000 block of West Skyline Parkway.

The subject barricaded himself inside of the home as officers arrived at the scene of the initial call. Negotiators spoke to the man for about an hour before he opened fire, killing K9 Haas and wounding an officer. Other officers returned fire and the suspect was found dead inside the home a short time later.

K9 Haas had served with the Duluth Police Department for two years and was certified in narcotics detection and patrol.
