K9 Caesar died after falling from a balcony in the Presentation Catholic Church at 758 South Springfield Avenue while searching for a suspect wanted for shooting a police officer.

The officer had been shot by several juveniles at a nearby community center. K9 Caesar and another canine were put in the church during the search of the suspects. During the search K9 Caesar rushed up the stairs to the choir loft and, while jumping from row to row, inadvertently jumped over the railing and fell 40 feet to the pews below.
