K9 Stryker was killed when he was intentionally thrown off the Coronado Bridge in San Diego.

Stryker's handler had assisted other units to pursue a vehicle down I-5 from Oceanside into San Diego. The subject drove onto the bridge and stopped at its highest point, 220 feet above the harbor. Stryker was released and immediately attempted to subdue the subject, but the man grabbed him and then jumped over the railing.

The suspect was rescued from the water but Stryker did not survive the fall.

The man was charged with several counts in connection with the chase and Stryker's murder.
