K9 Falco was shot and killed by a subject who had just shot his handler.

His handler had responded to a residence to perform a welfare check. As soon as he knocked on the door an occupant inside opened fire with a shotgun, striking him twice in the upper body. The deputy retreated to a nearby woodline and called for assistance.

As he waited for backup the subject exited the home, approached his cruiser, and shot K9 Falco inside of his kennel.

The subject barricaded himself inside his home for approximately two hours before committing suicide.
