K9 Alko died one day after being stabbed by a suspect he was attempting to apprehend in a wooded area near Edison Avenue.

Deputies had responded to a prowler call and encountered a subject who began to act irrational. He attacked one of the responding deputies before leading them on a short vehicle pursuit. He abandoned his car and jumped in a canal. K9 Alko was released and attempted to apprehend the man, but the subject punched him and stabbed him before being taken into custody.

The man was convicted of nine felony charges and sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Alko was taken to a local veterinary hospital where he died the following day.
