In a brief statement from Deschutes District Attorney Patrick Flaherty - the 37 year old Supplee has been with the department for 10 years. No other information will be released until the investigation is complete.

 

Supplee has been placed on paid administrative leave while Oregon State Police and the D-A's Office conduct their investigation.

 

Supplee and his K-9 partner - Zlatan were involved in other incidents this past year - but this recent event occurred on November 22nd when police responded to a burglary call at a home on NE Jackdraw Drive.

 

Neighbors say they heard shots coming from the home that was raided for drugs - guns and theft earlier in the day.
