He didn’t stay hidden for long. Indi immediately tracked him down. Taylor shot at the dog, alerting three DeKalb SWAT officers to his whereabouts. They returned fire, killing Taylor.
Indi is expected to make a full recovery, said DeKalb Police Chief James Conroy, though his future as a K9 cop is uncertain. He’s been with the force for five years, once helping catch a suspect in a brutal home invasion.
