K9 Drago was shot and killed in Allen by a subject who was wanted for domestic violence offenses.

As two Floyd County deputies arrived to serve the warrants and protective order the man opened fire, striking both deputies. Numerous jurisdictions responded to assist following the initial shooting. The man fired hundreds of rounds from prepositioned firearms throughout the home.

Deputy Sheriff William Petry and Captain Frasure, of the Prestonsburg Police Department, were killed during the incident. Four other law enforcement officers and the director of emergency management were wounded.

The subject was taken into custody after remaining barricaded in the home for several hours. He was charged with multiple counts of murder of a police officer, attempted murder of a police officer, and assaulting a service animal.
