Pittsburghers mourn the the death of K-9 Officer Rocco.

RIP Rocco: K-9 officer stabbed during arrest dies


PITTSBURGH

A K-9 officer that was stabbed earlier this week passed away on Thursday night.

Rocco was stabbed in Lawrenceville Tuesday and took a turn for the worse Thursday afternoon.

An emotional group of K-9 handlers and their K-9 officers, along with other police officers, lined the walkway outside of the Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center for Rocco, an 8-year-old German shepherd.

"After a good fight, Pittsburgh police lost one of its own, said police during a press conference.

All K-9s were called to the Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto ordered that flags be flown at half-mast on all city buildings.
