Zanesville, Ohio (AP) -- Police in northeast Ohio say they have captured a suspect wanted in the shooting of a police officer and his k-9 partner about 70 miles away.

Zanesville police say officer Mike Schiele was serving a warrant when he was shot Saturday night.

He was taken to a hospital in Columbus, where he was treated for a wound to an upper leg area and then released.

Police in Canton say they apprehended the suspect about 1 p.m. Monday.

The dog, Bosco, was shot multiple times and was to undergo surgery at a veterinary hospital in Columbus.

Police officials say the animal is expected to survive.

Zanesville is about 50 miles east of Columbus.
