PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

"We honor Bane's sacrifice." 

Phoenix police officers gathered outside a Valley church Thursday to pay tribute to beloved police K9 named Bane.

Bane was killed in the line of duty on April 17, after a suspect led police on a high-speed chase then held officers at bay as he holed up in a home.

The K9 was a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois with 1.5 years of service.

Bane is the 7th Phoenix canine partner lost in the line of duty since the program began in the 1970s.

A fundraiser in Bane's name was held last weekend at Steele Indian School Park Dog Park.
