ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say they’ve found the body of a dead person at a business where a police dog was earlier shot and wounded as officers responded to a reported burglary Friday morning.

Officer Simon Drobik says cause of death isn’t available but Drobik says officers did not fire their weapons during the incident. He also says the age and identity of the dead person - a male - aren’t available.

The dog is undergoing surgery for multiple wounds.

According to Drobik, the dog was sent into the commercial property and that police learned the dog was wounded when he came back out.

Police earlier said they heard gunfire after the dog was wounded and that they were trying to make contact with a person who had attempted to evade officers.
