K9 Tanja was shot and killed, and her handler wounded, after responding to a home in the 300 block of Moon Lake Road to search for a rape suspect.

The subject opened fire inside the home, killing Tanja and wounding her handler in the neck, before being taken into custody.

Tanja had only served with the Walker County Sheriff's Office for eight weeks.

There was no mention in this story of whether the suspect was charged with the death of a police officer, which Tanja was. I hope that suspect is charged just as if Tanja was a human officer. Thank you for your service sweet girl. God Bless and Godspeed.
