Incident Date: Thursday, June 20, 2013

K9 Ronin was shot and killed as he attempted a take down an armed subject who had fled from officers a short time earlier.

Patrol officers had initially responded to a business on Orangewood Avenue to investigate reports that a man was trespassing at approximately 6:45 pm. When the officer attempted to make contact with the individual the man fled on foot and jumped over a wall into a residential area. The subject was able to elude officers briefly and attempted to force entry into a home. Additional units were able to locate the subject hiding under a trampoline in the 5100 block of Morton Avenue.

K9 Ronin was deployed to subdue the subject, but the man opened fire, fatally wounding him and wounding his handler. Officers returned fire and killed the subject.

K9 Ronin was transported to a local animal hospital where he succumbed to his injuries overnight.

K9 Ronin had served with the Glendale Police Department for only three months and was the agency’s newest canine.

Playing Catch-Up

I have been trying to read up on what I’ve been missing in the various interests that I have.  Now my head is spinning and I need to go lie down.

I’m suffering from information overload this morning. So much for my plan of a grand, awe-inspiring blog posting.

The one nice thing about working from dusk to dawn is that happy hour comes REALLY early. I don’t have to feel guilty when I open a “cold one” at 8am…since that’s almost bed time for me.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more yuppified Burger King.

Instead of a play area, it had a”Children’s Room.”

Natural Disaster & Emergency Preparedness | Disaster Recovery Plan

I have added this link to my Emergency Preparedness link list, even though it is from a commercial company, and has advertising links all over the page. It is still good information. Hat Tip to Sophie!
