Officer Edgar Flores of the DeKalb County (GA) Police Department was conducting a traffic stop on Thursday evening when a subject fled on foot, opening fire on Flores as he ran.

Other officers then sought to apprehend the offender, and when a police K-9 located the subject a gunfight ensued. The K-9 was critically wounded and the gunman was killed.

According to the Georgia Law Enforcement Facebook page, K-9 Indi was shot in the eye. The bullet entered his eye, and exited through his ear without causing any significant brain damage. Friday afternoon, K-9 Indi was reportedly alert and conscious, recovering from his injuries.
