K9 Kozmo was killed while performing an apprehension of robbery suspects near the intersection of Bruton Road and I-635 at about 2:30 am.

Officers from several agencies had pursued the vehicle until it was immobilized by spike strips. One subject was arrested in the vehicle but the other two were able to flee into a nearby wooded area.

Prayers for the handler and the department. These K9’s become part the force. I know he will be missed greatly by his partner/handler. They become family in so many ways. My sons K9 is loved by us all even though our interaction is limited until he retires, he lives on the property with his partner. I can’t image what it’s like to loose your best friend and everyday working partner. Prayers for comfort and healing for the family as well. He died doing what he loved the most. Working. At least that’s my experience from these k9’s. May he fly high with the angels!
