Sutter County Sheriff’s Department K9 Bandit, 4, was shot and killed November 15th after a high speed pursuit with a parole-at-large in Butte County.

Multiple deputies were involved in the incident. The 48-year-old wanted parole, who had been jailed for a double homicide and had gone missing, was shot and killed. Officers confronted the suspect in a hardware store who then raced out of the store’s parking lot — hitting a law enforcement vehicle on the way — and drove off down Highway 70.

Law enforcement laid down a spike strip, which eventually stopped the car.

He got out and yelled “you guys should have left me alone,” at the pursuing officers. He added “I’m not going back,” according to authorities. Officers then released K9 Bandit on the man. He then advanced on officers, causing them to open fire.
