K9 Kilo was shot and killed by a subject who was barricaded inside a home on Iowa Avenue in Sellersburg, Indiana.

Members of the Sellersburg Police Department had attempted to serve a mental inquest warrant on the subject earlier in the morning. Upon the officers' arrival, the subject took his two children hostage at gunpoint and moved them on foot to the backyard of a home on East Delaware Court. He then left the children and barricaded himself in the house after breaking into it.

Members of the Indiana State Police SWAT team, along with Deputy K9 Kilo, responded to the scene. It was unclear if the suspect was still in the home when officers entered it, as the suspect had broken into several houses to flee arrest, but when the officers entered the suspect began firing blindly and Kilo was killed despite wearing body armor. A Clark County sheriff's deputy was also shot in the leg.
