K9 Jack was shot and killed while attempting an apprehension during a barricade in the 1800 block of West 145th Street in Gardena.

The barricade started the previous morning after a man shot at a neighbor's car during a dispute. The man then remained barricaded inside his condo as negotiators attempted to communicate with him. K9 Jack was shot by the man as the agency's SWAT team entered the condo in an attempt to take him into custody. The man was shot and killed with deputies returned fire.

K9 Jack had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for four years and had previously served as a military working dog, assigned to the Naval Special Warfare Development Group.

I have worked with K9's in the private sector. These dogs are loyal, courageous,
and loving to their human counterparts. I remember getting weak in my knees
as I watched a caring veternarian here in Texas help Levi and Gracie Lou leave this
life as cancer was ravaging their bodies. I lost a piece of myself both times. I believe
that God allows such loyal copanions to enter the gates of Heaven itself, and can only
hope that I will deserve my own entrance as much as these two did.
