Sarge II

K9 Sarge II succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained nine days earlier while attempting to apprehend a barricaded mental subject at 385 Fern Street.

The subject had barricaded himself inside a storage room after making claims that people were attempting to kill him. K9 Sarge II was released into a room to subdue him prior to the SWAT team making entry, however, the man immediately fired a shotgun at him. K9 Sarge II was struck by numerous pellets and wounded. His handler was able to open the door to let him out of the room and then rushed him to a veterinary clinic.

His condition worsened and he died on September 25th, 1980.

The man who shot him was committed to Eastern State Hospital.
