Veterinarians say a K9 officer named Nero is in stable condition after being shot in the head and neck in an incident that killed his handler. The Cape Cod SWAT Team stabilized the 28-month-old Belgian malinois at the scene before taking him to an emergency veterinary clinic, where he received further treatment before he was transferred for surgery. He's now eating and walking as he recovers at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists.
