K9 Shadow died immediately following a training exercise at the Ladson Fairgrounds.
Shadow had just finished being trained with a decoy and was placed in his handler's vehicle. Several minutes later his handler checked on him and noticed that Shadow was in medical distress. He was transported to a local animal hospital where he passed away.
The training exercise had been planned for the afternoon in an attempt to avoid the hottest portion of the day.
Shadow had served with the Hanahan Police Department for five years.
