Minneapolis police dog dies after fall from roof

chaseA Minneapolis police dog died Monday after falling from the roof of a three-story building.

Chase, who had served in the department since 2007, was helping his handler, Eric Lukes, search the roof of a former car dealership during a burglary call when he fell.

The dog was taken to the University of Minnesota for medical treatment but he couldn’t be saved, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

“It’s tough to lose one of these dogs,” police spokesman Sgt. Bill Palmer said. “They’re invaluable in safeguarding the lives of our officers.”

Police said three suspects were arrested at the scene.
