K9 Dingo was shot and killed while attempting an apprehension of a wanted fugitive near the intersection of 3300 South and 1100 East.

Members of the United States Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team had located the subject driving in the area at about 1:00 am. The man fled when they attempted to stop him. Spike strips were successfully deployed but the man continued to drive until abandoning his car and fleeing on foot. K9 Dingo was released and caught the subject, but the man produced a gun and fired several shots, fatally wounding Dingo.

Other officers were able to take the man into custody without further incident.

K9 Dingo had served with the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake for five years.
