What a tragic and beautiful story at the same time!
According to the Palm Beach Post, Philip O’Shea was running from the police officers when he crashed his vehicle. O’Shea started firing at police officers who returned fire.
PBSO K-9 Officer Kasper jumped in front of his partner and took a bullet. Amazingly, Kasper is going to survive the ordeal. O’Shea was killed in the process which is a consequence of his bad deeds, but the hero story here is Kasper.

Authorities say a man was shot and killed after two separate shootouts with South Florida deputies while a police dog took a bullet during one of the shootouts.
The Palm Beach Post reports that 46-year-old Philip O’Shea died Friday evening. Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says O’Shea had an extensive criminal history and was wanted in Raleigh, North Carolina, in connection with a May 2 motel robbery.
Bradshaw said deputies saw the suspect, and chased the suspect before he crashed the vehicle, CBS affiliate WPEC. Gunfire was exchanged between deputies and the suspect was killed.
PBSO K-9 Officer Kasper took a bullet in the gunfire that was meant for his partner, Bradshaw said. K-9 Officer Kasper is in surgery and is expected to survive.
Authorities say O’Shea was involved in a shootout Friday morning in suburban West Palm Beach where one deputy was injured while diving for cover. Bradshaw said O’Shea had many outstanding out-of-state warrants in North Carolina prior to coming to Florida.
