Authorities ID man accused in police dog stabbing

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Authorities have identified the man accused of fatally stabbing an Oklahoma City police dog before he was shot to death by the dog's handler.

Police said Tuesday that 22-year-old Mark Salazar of Blue Mound, Texas, stabbed a police dog named Kye, then was shot to death Sunday by the dog's handler. The 3-year-old German shepherd died Monday of a heart attack after undergoing emergency surgery.

Police say the dog was deployed after a high-speed police chase through two counties. The dog's handler, Sgt. Ryan Stark, has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal review.

Oklahoma City police say a funeral for Kye will be held Thursday at First Southern Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. The department says the service will be conducted with "full police honors."
