WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette police have announced the death of one of its K-9 officers. Barry was euthanized Monday after an unexpected medical condition, according to Sgt. Troy Green.

The department extended its sympathy to Officer Elizabeth Romstadt, Barry's handler. 

Barry has been a member of the West Lafayette Police Department since June of 2015.  In February of 2018, Barry was in the news after famous journalist Anderson Cooper donated a $2,500 bulletproof vest to the department. It was custom-fit to Barry, and had a unique fitting so it was more comfortable for the dog.
