K9 Max died following complications during surgery for a duty related injury the previous night.

K9 Max and his handler had responded to a burglary in progress on NW 176th Terrace in which multiple suspects were believed to be inside of a residence. Max's handler deployed him through a jalousie window that appeared to provide access into the home. One of the glass panels in the window came loose and severely lacerated one of Max's ears.

He was transported to Hollywood Animal Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to repair the damage. During the surgery he suffered a medical emergency and died.

K9 Max had served as a certified apprehension and explosive ordinance detection canine for four years.
