K9 Trax was accidentally shot and killed by his handler after three pit bulls attacked the dog at a home on Old Henderson Road, in Evansville.

Trax was accompanying his handler and three other deputies as they served a probation warrant on a subject. When they arrived at the home they ordered the man to put the dogs up, but the man refused, and instead opened the door and let the dogs out to attack the deputies. As one of the dogs attacked K9 Trax his handler attempted to shoot it, but accidentally fatally shot Trax.

The subject who released the dogs was charged with battery.
