K9 Vag, aka Sergeant Vag, was struck and killed by a streetcar on Niagara Street, near Hudson Street, after being attacked by a stray dog.

Vag had left the First Precinct with a police officer who had just left to go home and boarded the streetcar. Vag was following the streetcar when he was attacked.

K9 Vag had been a vagrant dog who was adopted by the officers at the First Precinct five years earlier. He regularly accompanied officers as they walked their beats and was credited with several criminal apprehensions as well as assisting with the rescue of a drowning person.
