K9 Kobus was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a subject who had barricaded himself inside of his home, near the intersection of North 83rd Street and Keystone Drive, for over 24 hours.

The standoff started when Douglas County sheriff's deputies attempted to take the man into custody following on a mental health warrant. The subject fired at deputies who had gone into the residence to retrieve a robot that became stuck inside.

K9 Kobus was deployed into the house to apprehend the subject but was shot and killed. The man surrendered a short time later and was taken into custody.

K9 Kobus had served with the Omaha Police Department for six years and was due to be retired in the coming months.

Medal of honor for all K9 officers who selflessly give their lives for the cause of duty! Dogs feel fear also, and are far from "dumb." They do understand that they are going after the "bad guys." These are true acts of bravery. Godspeed Officer Aren. May all of the humans learn from your example of selflessness, bravery & loyalty. These officers are eager to work, eager to please and get the job done! Great Sympathies to his partner.
