Our sister station, FOX 4, in Dallas are reporting an Arlington Police Department K-9 died after he collapsed during a search for a suspect Tuesday morning.

Detectives were tracking a fugitive, 17-year-old Sune Deon Arnold Jr.,  wanted in conjunction with a June 12 shooting of another man. When officers tried to pull him over around 8 a.m., Arnold refused and sped away.

After an hour-long search for Arnold, K-9 Officer Mojo appeared to be overheating and collapsed. He was rushed to an animal hospital where he later died around 2:30 p.m.

Arnold was later arrested around 4:30 p.m. after a 911 caller reported seeing him in the area.
