With Cigo’s death, several tributes were posted in honor of the fallen officer.
According to TMZ, a 3-year-old police dog, named Cigo, was killed by a suspect after saving the lives of some officers in Florida. Palm Beach sheriffs confronted suspected individuals who were wanted on attempted first-degree murder and robbery warrants.
The report added that one of the suspects ran and was chased by Cigo. Unfortunately, the suspect shot the dog before one of the officers could return fire. The dog was rushed to the nearest animal hospital but was pronounced dead late. The suspected criminal was wounded and was severely injured, TMZ added.
