K9 Thor was shot killed as his handler responded to a prowler call at 65030 Allison Road at 2:45 am.

The homeowner had called the police to report a man attempting to get into his house. When Thor's handler arrived at the scene he noticed a flashlight being used in the home's backyard. He and Thor walked around to the back of the home where Thor suddenly alerted and began to growl.

Thor's handler pointed his flashlight in the direction Thor was pointing and saw a man crouched down in the bushes. The man opened fire on Thor and his handler. Thor was fatally wounded by one of the shots fired by the suspect, who was also killed during the incident.
