K9 Magnum was euthanized after being shot in the face two days earlier while pursuing a bank robbery suspect.

The subject had fled into a bean field during the pursuit, and Magnum was released into the field to find him. He was shot in the face and suffered a critical injury that he could not recover from.

Magnum was the second Anderson Police Department canine to be killed in the line of duty in a three week period.

On February 5th, 2013, the subject who killed K9 Magnum was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Thank you for sacrificing your life for others , my prayers are with your police dept and handler . People can learn so much from a dog not that you were an ordinary dog , far from that you are a heroe that will never be forgotten . Unfortunately as long as we still have evil in this world there will continue to be pain and suffering . I hope the guy that shot you gets the death penalty . He clearly shot a working k9 officer . When you woke up I doubt you thought your day would end like this but. 1 day you and officer Matt will be united at the rainbow bridge

Lenny - thankful civilian
None , I love what k9 & police do
