Birth: Jul. 29, 2009
Death: May 14, 2012

A Las Vegas Metro police K-9 who was shot by an officer during a foot pursuit has died.

Marco, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois, was euthanized Tuesday night after "all attempts to restore neurological function failed," according to a statement.
He was surrounded by his family and several officers, including his handler, Officer Jeffrey Corbett.

The animal was shot by Officer Edward Renfer after he became confused and bit Officer Michael Foster during a May 14 foot chase in a west Las Vegas neighborhood.

Marco suffered spinal cord damage in the shooting and he was unable to move both his front and back legs.

The Facebook page "Friends of the Las Vegas Police K9's" first reported Marco's passing Wednesday morning.
"It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the news of Marco's passing," a status update said.
"Our heart goes out to his partner and all the officers of the Las Vegas Police K9 Unit. He was our little hero but his legacy will go on!"

Marco joined the police department in January and was assigned to patrol duty in April.
