Attempted murder conviction in K-9 shooting
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A jury has returned an attempted murder conviction for a woman whose boyfriend shot and seriously wounded a Sacramento police dog before firing on the K-9’s human partner.
The Sacramento Bee says the jury determined Wednesday that the woman, Leslie Marie McCully, was equally responsible for her boyfriend’s actions in May of last year when they took off on a high-speed chase after an officer tried to pull them over.
Lucus Jerome Webb was fatally shot when he opened fire on Officer Randy Van Dusen and his K-9, Bodie. The German shepherd suffered gunshot wounds but has recovered. Officer Van Dusen was not hit.
McCully’s sentencing is set for Oct. 11.
Bodie’s story drew Facebook fans worldwide who eagerly awaited updates on his condition.
The dog retired from the force in May.
