VIDEO: Funeral procession held for Toronto police K9 dog, Bingo, in Yorkville after being shot dead

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Funeral procession held for Toronto police K9 dog, Bingo, in Yorkville after being shot dead. 

Toronto police lined a funeral procession on Thursday morning for Bingo – a police dog shot and killed in the line of duty while searching for a suspect with a gun on Tuesday night. The suspect involved in the shooting was also shot by a Toronto police officer prompting the province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) to investigate. The SIU said at 7:45 p.m. officers had gone to an apartment on Dixon Road in an attempt to “arrest the suspect for second-degree murder.”

A spokesperson for the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) told reporters Wednesday that police attended an apartment building in the area of Dixon Road and Kipling Avenue around 8 p.m. to locate and arrest a suspect for second-degree murder.

Shortly after they arrived, the SIU said, the suspect shot at officers, who did not return fire. The suspect, a 44-year-old man, fled and was later located in the backyard of a home on Kingsview Boulevard, the SIU added.

At some point during the interaction, Bingo was shot and killed and an officer shot and wounded the suspect, according to the SIU. The man was taken to hospital for treatment and the SIU is now investigating the circumstances surrounding the officer-involved shooting.

Members of the mounted unit lined the street outside an emergency vet clinic near Yonge and Davenport streets at around 7:30 a.m. Onlookers saluted as a group of uniformed officers brought Bingo out of the clinic to a waiting vehicle.

Flags outside Toronto police headquarters and other police facilities across the city were lowered in honour of the dog.

Bingo will be transported to Guelph University for end of life veterinary services.
