Maros

Officer Jason Crisp and K9 Maros were shot and killed in Burke County, North Carolina, while participating in the manhunt for a subject who had murdered his own parents.

Officers from several agencies were searching for the subject after the bodies of the subject's parents were located in their home in the 5000 block of Fish Hatchery Road. The subject had previously served one year in prison on a manslaughter charge for a murder he committed in 1997.

Officer Crisp and several other officers located the subject in the area of Fish Hatchery Road and Pea Ridge Road and were fired upon. Officer Crisp was fatally wounded during the exchange of gunfire.

The subject then stole Officer Crisp's service weapon and extra magazines before fleeing further into the woods. He was located by other officers a short time later and was shot and killed when he opened fire on them.

Dogs are friends and family, not merely pets or tools. The bond you no doubt had with Officer Crisp was unbreakable and true. We mourn your partner and we mourn you as well. Rest in Peace, Good and Faithful servant.
