A dog was shot and killed by Fairfax County police during a search of a house in Herndon this morning.

Officers with the Fairfax County Police Department’s SWAT team were serving a search warrant in the 1500 block of Powells Place Tavern, a neighborhood of single-family homes near Dranesville Elementary School, according to the department.

The team was looking to recover police equipment that had been stolen “from another jurisdiction,” the FCPD said at 7 a.m.

“During the service, at least one officer discharged their firearm striking a dog,” police said. “No other injuries reported.”

The department tweeted at 7:35 a.m. that the dog had died.

“Stolen equipment was recovered & the man was taken into custody. Our Internal Affairs Bureau is responding to the scene,” the FCPD wrote.
