LBPD K-9 Officers Ass'n Website Includes Front Page Tribute To "Ranger"; Memorial Ceremony Scheduled Oct. 12, 2 p.m.
(October 12, 2005) -- LBPD's Canine (K-9) Officers Association's website has new pages with a tribute to "Ranger," mortally wounded in an Oct. 3 shootout with an armed parolee.
I'm taking my camera with me as well.
The new webpages include details of today's (Oct. 12) scheduled memorial ceremony for Ranger:
Date: Wednesday, October 12, 2:00 p.m.
Location: LB Police Academy, 7290 Carson St., LB 90808
The Academy is located west of the 605 freeway / Carson Street in the LB Town Center. The entrance to the Academy is behind Lowe's Home Improvement.
Ranger died after a parolee armed with a handgun fled police, shot at pursuing officers, hid and refused to come out. Ranger was sent in; the suspect shot at SWAT officers, who in fear for their safety returned fire, killing the suspect.
"Ranger" was hit by gunfire. He was airlifted for surgery at an animal care facility in Tustin where he succumbed to his wounds.
"Ranger," age 4, was with LBPD for two years.
