Man Gets Smoked After Shooting Police K9

Jonathan Alexander shot a police K9 in the neck before police killed him.

Marysville, CA – A man who shot a police K9 in the neck during a pursuit was fatally shot by police officers Friday.

Police identified Jonathan Alexander, 26, as the suspect who was killed, according to KCRA-TV.

The Wheatland Police Department pulled over Alexander for driving under the influence at about 2:30 a.m. April 6.

Police witnessed Alexander driving at 90 mph and turned off his lights before eventually pulling over.

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department said that there was a strong smell of liquor coming from the vehicle.

Alexander gave his name to the police officer but then became uncooperative, police said.

Alexander then drove off and police chased him. Police set up spike strips and Alexander drove over them but it didn’t slow the car down.

It wasn’t until Alexander went over a second set of spike strips that his car came to a stop, police said.

Police said that Alexander would not obey commands to surrender or exit the vehicle.

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department then used their K9. At that point, Alexander pulled out a gun and shot the K9 in the neck.

Police then responded by shooting Alexander, according to the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department.

Police removed Alexander from the car and gave him CPR until the emergency medical personnel arrived. Alexander died at the scene.

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department said that the bullet that hit K9 Glock came out of the other side of the dog’s neck.

Glock was taken to the vet for treatment and police said the K9 is recovering at home.

No officers were hit by gunfire.

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Office, Wheatland Police Department, Marysville Police Department and California Highway Patrol were all involved in the incident, according to KCRA.

Hope Glock makes a full recovery and able to return to duty. Jonathan Alexander was obviously a low life POS and I'm grateful he was removed from our society.

Wishing Glock a complete recovery. He did his job and his handler and the other officers involved were able to go home to their families.

While I'm sure they look similar similar I believe this breed is called a Belgian malinois... They are chosen for security and canines due to their temperament strength and intelligence much like the shepherd

I'm curious if a K9 gets shot and survives, is the dog forced to retire or can it continue to work after recovery? Is it based on level of recovery, officer discretion or is it a department policy issue? I'm guessing the latter.
