K9 Argo
Jun 11, 2021

K9 Argo succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained the previous day when he was shot by a wanted man in the 7200 block of Lowery Road.

The suspect was wanted in connection with the shooting of a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper.

K9 Argo and his handler were being assisted by five Fort Worth canine officers and a Texas Ranger as they search a very densely wooded area following a sighting of the suspect by a local resident. As the group was searching the area behind a shed the suspect opened fire. Officers immediately returned fire killing the suspect. K9 Argo was struck twice and his handler was struck once in his chest but the round was stopped by his vest.

K9 Argo was taken to a veterinarian hospital where a blood transfusion was performed. K9 Argo was thought to be on a road to recovery when he suffered a relapse the next day and succumbed to his gunshot wounds.
