Pittsburgh Police Officer Bryan Sellers helps train Emir, a German Shepherd, to detect explosives at the former Big Bear Plus supermarket on Bellefontaine Street. Approximately 10 police officers from across the country gathered in front of the former supermarket that day as part of a training program designed to prepare the K-9s for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game that was held that year in Pittsburgh.
