PHOENIX – A K-9 died Tuesday during the arrest of a suspect who led officers on a pursuit in a stolen vehicle.

According to AZ Central, officers surrounded a home where the suspect, who had bailed from the carjacked vehicle, was hiding. Officer deployed K-9 Bane, a three-year-old Belgian Malinois who had served with the department for nearly two years, into the home.

When officers entered the residence, they found the suspect, who was not immediately identified, on top of Bane. The suspect was taken into custody and treated for injuries.

Police said Bane was not shot, but it’s unclear how he died. A passenger who was in the stolen vehicle with the suspect was also taken into custody. No other officers were harmed during the incident.

“Bane died heroically helping apprehend a suspect to keep our community safe,” Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said.
