A carjacking suspect and a police dog both died Wednesday after a pursuit ended with a crash and a shootout in suburban Chicago, authorities said.
Officers were trying to execute a traffic stop in South Elgin on a man wanted on a warrant when the man fled to Batavia, where he crashed at an intersection, the Kane County Sheriff’s Office said.
The suspect got out of his car holding a handgun, at which point the police dog was turned loose, the sheriff’s office said.
