K9 Ape was shot and killed by a subject who had murdered four people in Herkimer, New York, the previous day.

The subject had walked into several businesses in the small town and murdered several people before hiding in a nearby abandoned building on North Main Street. An FBI tactical team was called to the scene to assist local and state agencies during the standoff.

Following a prolonged standoff the tactical team made entry to search the building. The subject immediately opened fire from the doorway of a room, killing K9 Ape. Agents returned fire, killing the subject.

K9 Ape had served with the Federal Bureau of Investigation for only three weeks after completing training February 25th, 2013.
