(NSFW) Dallas PD K9 Officers Survive Gunshots

This footage depicts an officer involved shooting from the perspective of a Dallas Police Officer, Senior Corporal Scott Jay, and another responding DPD officer, identified on camera as "Pando" who assisted with wound care.


I'm not going to pull any punches here- this is a hard one to watch. I will take some of the sting out and let you know up front that Sr. Corporal Scott and his K9 partner, Figor, survived this encounter. The two were searching for a suspect, Brian Casillas, who had shot two people earlier in the week. Early on in Jay's footage, K9 Figor finds and engages Casillas, at approximately 0:16. After a second of struggle, at 0:17, the suspect fires a handgun at Figor, striking the K9 in the chest. Corporal Jay then engages in an exchange of gunfire with the suspect, killing him. Despite his victory, Jay is shot in the left leg and also takes a round in the chest. The gunfight is brief, intense, and panicked, as they often are. What made this video stand out to me is the extreme dedication this officer and his K9 have toward each other.


Figor took a round to the chest and stayed in the fight. Jay notifies by radio that he's been hit at 00:34, but at 01:01 gives a status report- "I'm hit, my partner's hit." Not "my dog"- my partner . As other officers arrive on scene, he repeats this. At 01:42, the distress in his voice is audible. At 02:09, despite the great and obvious physical pain he's in, Jay lifts and carries K9 Figor. At 02:28, other officers call to Jay, and begin to put a tourniquet on his leg. However, Jay insists on putting Figor away, because he knows that in Figor's wounded, shocked, and protective state he is likely to hurt other officers in his bid to protect himself and Jay. He leashes K9 Figor to a tree at 02:57, repeatedly insisting to take care of Figor and make the area safe for him and fellow DPD officers.


At 03:12, the POV changes to a responding officer, identified by bodycam as "Pando." As Jay sits on a low flight of steps, an officer administers a tourniquet, reminded to place it "high and tight" on the leg. As the tourniquet is placed, Jay reminds them that K9 Figor has been hit. Pando downplays Figor's injuries to spare Jay some of the substantial stress he is feeling. At 04:18, he unbuttons Jay's blouse to reveal the additonal round Jay took in the chest.


Again, I want to stress that both Jay and Figor survived, as demonstrated by their picture. While there's room for humor, we try to show things here that have educational or informational value- certainly not gore or tragedy simply for their own sake. Therefore, I shared this to highlight two priceless parts of carrying a gun for a living, or as a way of life: expedient and excellent medical care, which can be taught, and selfless concern for your partners, K9 or otherwise, which cannot be taught, only brought out of who you truly are. I wish these two the speediest of recoveries.
