A Vancouver, Wash., police K-9 has died from injuries he suffered when he was stabbed by a wanted man on Tuesday.

A Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman said the suspect ran away and was tracked down hiding in bushes by K-9 officer Ike.

The dog bit the suspect, but the man stabbed the dog.

Ike was rushed to Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, police said, but he did not survive his injuries.

The suspect, who has been identified as Jacky Chan Karuo, 25, was taken into custody after officers used a stun gun, KPTV reports.
