A memorial service for Haas, the police dog that died from a wound sustained as police responded to a reported domestic assault on Jan. 13, will take place on Friday, Duluth police announced.

The event will take place at 4 p.m. in the Harborside Ballroom of the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. Doors will open at 3 p.m. It’s free and open to the public and parking at the DECC will be free for the event. However, the DECC is a pet-free zone, so no dogs will be allowed.

Haas was taken to an emergency veterinary hospital after being shot during the Jan. 13 incident but died at the facility, police said. The dog’s handler, Officer Aaron Haller, was wounded in the incident. Haas had worked alongside Haller for two years.
