LOOMIS – Placer County Sheriff K9 officer Eros was honored on Monday on the California State Assembly floor.
Assemblymember Kevin Kiley honored Eros for his heroic efforts to apprehend a gunman who engaged in a shootout with local law enforcement.
Back on Jan. 15, Eros was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle with a suspect who had killed an elderly woman and injured a father of six. Eros had a bullet enter his hip bone and he had to be rushed to surgery.
Eros was already back on patrol earlier in March.
