Bexar County K-9 officer shot and killed

BEXAR COUNTY, TX (CNN) - A procession was held over the weekend for a Texas K-9 deputy that was killed while trying to save others.

Officials say the k-9 named "Chucky" was killed by a suspect after a high speed chase that reached up to 100 miles per hour.

Authorities say the chase ended with a standoff between deputies and an armed suspect Friday night.

After abandoning his car, officials say 38-year-old Matthew Mireles got out and fired at least one shot at deputies.

That's when deputies made the decision to send in Chucky who grabbed a hold of the suspect.

Unfortunately, Mireles shot and killed Chucky.

He faces plenty of charges, including felony charges of interfering with a police service animal, attempted capital murder of a police officer, aggravated assault and evading arrest.
