A police K9 was killed during an ambush shooting incident on Tuesday night in an Anderson, South Carolina, Lowe’s parking lot. Early Wednesday morning, K9s of Valor updated Facebook followers about the incident, writing:
Please keep K9 Roscoe from the Anderson County SC Sheriff’s Office in your thoughts and prayers. Roscoe was shot last night when he, his handler and other deputies were ambushed by a male and female suspect they were tracking.
Sheriff McBride stated, “It’s not good. It does not look good for him. We are praying.”
But Roscoe did not survive, reports WYFF News. According to the news agency, the German shepherd was killed in the ambush, and one of the suspects was killed when deputies returned fire. Another suspect, a woman, also sustained a gunshot wound and was transported to a hospital for treatment.
Rest in peace Roscoe.
