      Memorial service held for hero K-9 killed in Herkimer County

      New York State Police honored "Ape" the German Shepard who was shot to death by gunman Kurt Myers last week.

      The two year old tactical K-9 dog named Ape, who started his career with the FBI just a few weeks ago, has been memorialzied by some of the police he's believed to have protected from harm. Ape was killed in the line of duty during a standoff in Herkimer last Thursday.

      New York State Police Troop D posted several images of a small casket draped in an American flag being loaded onto a plane for the flight to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia. There, the agency says Ape's name will be added to a memorial of the fallen.
