LUBBOCK, Texas -

According to The Lubbock Police Department, retired LPD K-9 Riki passed away from an unexpected illness. 

Riki retired last summer and became a pet to his handler, Cpl. Brock Gruner.

"When I got him as a new handler several years ago, I couldn't have asked for a better first partner," Cpl. Gruner said. "He loved what he did and was always ready to go assist in apprehending the suspect. No matter what we were doing, he was always 100% committed to doing his job and never hesitated when I asked him to do something. In my opinion, he was the best partner for me to have as new canine handler."
