NBC in Los Angeles is reporting that Police K9 Credo was killed during a standoff in Long Beach California on Tuesday, police said. The standoff involved a man wanted in connection with a deadly weapons case.
Credo was rushed to a veterinary hospital, where his death was confirmed.
Pictures from the scene include Credo laid out on the ground and being carried to the squad car. I couldn’t bear to post them. Credo does not appear to be wearing a vest, but I’m not sure whether one would have helped him or not because the article doesn’t say where he was shot.
Rest well, Credo. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
