According to AZ Central, Suspect Chad Bogle stabbed Jake several times as police responded to a burglary in progress. A neighbor had reported that Suspect Bogle had a gun.
Officers fired several bean bag rounds at Bogle before sending Jake after him. Bogle was bit, but then dragged the K-9 into the house, stabbing him multiple times before releasing him back to officers.
Police fired at least one round at Bogle after he exited the house an additional time. Bogle went back inside the home and was later found dead inside by police. It is unclear whether the round fired by an officer caused his death or if it was self-inflicted, according to the report.
Bogle had a long criminal history.
