At least two police officers and one police dog died Thursday after a Kentucky man opened fire on officers who were trying to serve a warrant.

Lance Storz, 49, was arrested and is accused of killing two officers, wounding at least four more, killing a police dog, and wounding an emergency management official, according to an arrest citation.

His arraignment took place Friday morning, according to a report.

Storz pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, two counts of murder of a police officer, and first-degree assault on a service animal.

Bond for Storz was set at $10 million, the report said.

Storz barricaded himself in a home and used a rifle to fire on the officers responding to a domestic violence situation, authorities said.

He shot at the officers for hours, according to Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt.

"This guy had a plan, and he pretty much executed that plan almost to precision," Hunt said. "They encountered pure hell when they arrived. They had no chance."

One officer tried to take cover under a car and suffered carbon monoxide poisoning, according to Hunt.

"At one time the car he was under took a barrage of bullets. Shot the K-9 dog in the back seat," Hunt said.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear called the shooting a tragedy.

Crime and Public Safety | San Jose: Man arrested in Mexico in connection with April killing

A man suspected in a fatal shooting in Willow Glen in April has been arrested in Mexico and is expected to be extradited to face prosecution in the South Bay, according to San Jose police.

Police officers were called at about 4:30 a.m. April 9 for a report of a person down near Meridian Way and Pedro Street, and found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he died. He was identified as Cristian Murillo Ramirez, a 25-year-old San Jose resident.

An ensuing investigation identified Jose Alberto Aguirre, 28, of San Jose, as “the primary suspect responsible” for the shooting, police said in a Friday news release. He was also thought to have traveled to Mexico after the killing.

After obtaining an arrest warrant for Aguirre, police said San Jose detectives, the U.S. Marshals Service, and authorities in Mexico tracked him to Mexcali, a city just across the border from Imperial County in Southern California.

Mexican authorities arrested Aguirre in Mexicali on Tuesday, and he was transferred to U.S. Marshals custody, police said. Aguirre was booked into the Imperial County jail and is awaiting extradition to Santa Clara County.

Police have not publicly disclosed a motive or the circumstances behind the April shooting and their subsequent suspicion of Aguirre.
