A police K-9 was killed after it attacked its handler Friday while serving a search warrant.
An officer shot the dog after it bit its handler on the hand around 12:30 p.m., Garen Bynum, police spokesman, told KWTX.
The injured handler was taken to a hospital.
Officers did not gain entry into the house until several hours after the dog was killed, the Waco Tribune reported.
More details about the incident will be released Monday, Bynum told KWTX.
