US Marshal Service K9 injured in shooting released from hospital


CHICAGO (SCS) — The video shows a special tribute to K9 Rin, the dog that was shot Thursday in Chicago during an arrest in the city’s Belmont Cragin neighborhood.

The dog, a Chicago police officer and a U.S. marshal were shot while trying to arrest 19-year-old Tarrion Johnson, who was wanted for allegedly trying to shoot two people who said they weren’t were trying to drive it until April 2021.

Johnson is charged with five counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted armed robbery, one count of wounding a police animal and one count of charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

Rin was released from the emergency vet around 3:30 p.m. Saturday. CBS 2 believes the man shown walking with Rin in the video is the U.S. Marshal who was also shot.

It is not yet known if Rin should recover enough to return to service.
