Police officers and their canine companions from across Oklahoma paid their respects to a 3-year-old K-9 named Kye who was laid to rest earlier this week.

Kye, who received full-honors for his service, was killed in the line of duty attempting to take down a burglary suspect in Oklahoma City. According to reports, Kye was stabbed multiple times by the suspect and then went into cardiac arrest at the scene.

Kye was a member of the Oklahoma City Police Department working along side his partner, Sgt. Ryan Stark, for two years. Stark, a 13-year-veteran of the force, apparently pulled out his gun and fatally shot the suspect during the altercation. This was the first time an Oklahoma City that a police dog was killed by a person that officers were chasing.

In the heartbreaking images captured of the funeral below, you can see the anguish and pain written all over Stark’s face. He not only lost a partner but he also lost a best friend.
