Roscoe

K9 Roscoe was shot and killed from ambush while tracking two suspects who had bailed out of a vehicle following a pursuit.

The pursuit had started after deputies attempted to make a traffic stop but was terminated as it entered a more populated area. Several minutes later the vehicle was involved in a crash in the 3500 block of Clemson Boulevard and two subjects, a male and a female, fled on foot.

As deputies responded to the scene, K9 Roscoe began a track from the crash site. As the deputies went up a hill, they were ambushed by the two suspects who opened fire on them, striking K9 Roscoe. Deputies returned fire, killing the male subject, and wounding the female subject.

K9 Roscoe was taken to a local veterinary hospital where he died the following morning.

K9 Roscoe had served with the Anderson County Sheriff's Office for two years.
