JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a police dog was shot
and killed while chasing an armed carjacking suspect.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said in social media posts that the K-9 dog
named Fang died early Sunday.

The sheriff’s office said the suspect was apprehended by another K-9 dog at
the scene and arrested. The suspect’s name was not immediately released.

Fang was a 3-year-old German shepherd that performed both patrol and bomb-detection duties.

According to the sheriff’s office, Fang patrolled special events and football
games and "captured some of the most dangerous criminals" in Jacksonville.

The Portland, Oregon Police Bureau’s Canine Unit hosted an open house
and dedication ceremony for the newly created Canine Memorial, located
in front of the Canine Unit office and public safety building at 4735 East
Burnside Street, formerly Southeast Precinct. 

The memorial project was made possible through countless hours of 
work by local artist Richard A. Moore III, as well as many donors, such
as the Portland Police Historical Society and Adventist Credit Union,
following the tragic shooting death of Portland Police K-9 Mick (above)
in 2014.
