K9 Credo was shot and killed while deployed at a barricade situation involving a man wanted in connection with shooting several other people.

Credo was assisting the agency's SWAT team in the 2800 block of East 15th Street when the subject came out of the apartment and aggressively charged at officers. Credo was deployed to stop the man, at which point he pulled out a knife. Officers on scene fire at the subject, fatally wounding him and Credo.

Credo was transported to a nearby veterinary clinic where he died a short time later.

K9 Credo had served with the Long Beach Police Department for two years as a patrol and narcotics detection canine.

The image of you being carried frantically by your partner to safety will never leave me; you died fighting for those (and the one) you love. Dogs ARE mans best and most loyal friends, better than human friends most of the time. Rest easy Credo, until you and your partner meet again..
