On July 15, 2022, West County SWAT was called out to serve a search/arrest warrant for a suspect wanted in connection with a homicide in the City of Westminster that occurred on July 13. During the warrant service, a police K-9 was injured by gunfire. No other officers were injured. The suspect was reportedly shot and killed during the incident.

West County SWAT is a joint agency that draws members from Cypress, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and Westminster Police Departments.

The injured K-9 was identified by the Cypress Police Department as Police Service Dog Kubo. The Cypress PD’s social media account states that Kubo suffered minor injuries to his ear and was transported to the veterinarian. He is currently well on his way to recovery.

The suspect, Trent William Millsap, who already had an outstanding parole warrant, was wanted for a July 13 stabbing death at the 76 gas station in the 6300 block of Westminster Blvd. in Westminster. The victim in that incident was later identified as NASCAR driver Bobby East.
