Jethro, the Canton PD K9 who was shot in the line of duty on Saturday, has died from his injuries.

Funeral services for the heroic K9 will be held at noon on Thursday.

Canton police officers had been searching for a suspect related to an alarm call at a local business on Saturday when Jethro was shot three times by 22-year old suspect Kelontre Barefield. 

Officers fired upon Barefield and struck him once in the leg. He was taken into custody.

Jethro, shot in the face, neck, and shoulder area was brought to a local veterinarian; however, he passed away the next morning
