KENTWOOD- Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards says there has been no contact with suspect Kaunda Magee since he shot a police dog tracking him Wednesday.  Magee has been on the run in a wooded area near Kentwood for more than a week.  He is wanted for rape and kidnapping charges.

Sheriff Edwards says the K-9 did survive.  He says it appears the TPSO dog bit the suspect.  The search zone for Magee is a 25 square mile area.  Sheriff Edwards says there is no evidence Magee has left the zone, but he said it is impossible to be certain.

Seven different agencies are helping with the search.  Edwards says it is a costly operation but worth the public safety factor.
