K9 Hudson was shot and killed in Geneva during the apprehension of a robbery suspect.

A Kane County deputy sheriff located a stolen vehicle after being alerted by an LPR hit. Deputies attempted to stop the car at the intersection of Randall Road and Silver Glen Road in South Elgin, but the driver fled, and a pursuit was initiated. The driver exited the vehicle holding a handgun at the intersection of Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway, in Geneva. K9 Hudson was deployed for an apprehension and bit the subject, who then opened fire.

K9 Hudson and the subject were both killed during the exchange of gunfire.

K9 Hudson had served with the Kane County Sheriff's Office for six years.

I only recently began to realize and understand what our K9 officers can do and how they love to work, play and protect us. Needless to say I have used two boxes of tissues reading about these wonderful creatures.
So, so sad to hear of K9 Hudson's passing and can't imagine how his handler and family are coping. K9 Hudson paid the ultimate price, and gladly, to keep the community and handler safe. Safe travels to Heaven. You'll unite with your dad one day.
