PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Two of three men who police say were involved in a burglary that led to the fatal shooting of a Portland police dog and the wounding of the dog’s handler have been booked into jail.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says 25-year-old Jemaell Riley was released from a Portland hospital Thursday and booked for investigation of multiple felony counts, including burglary and robbery conspiracy.

Simpson says 20-year-old Steven Young has been booked on a burglary count and will face additional counts. Both Young and Riley are expected to make court appearances Friday.

Police say 20-year-old Paul Alan Ropp remains under 24-hour police guard at a Portland hospital. He’s expected to be released in a few days. The Oregonian reports Ropp suffered a head wound and dog bites.

Officer Jeff Dorn was shot and wounded in both legs early Wednesday while his K-9, Mick, was fatally shot. Dorn was released from a hospital Thursday.

Police say the burglary targeted a police equipment store. A police chase followed and the suspects crashed their vehicle into a utility pole.
