QUINCY (CBS) – One of the first police dogs to respond to the Boston Marathon bombings has died.

Quincy Police said Ronan, a 10-year-old Belgian Malinois, died on Thursday.

Ronan responded after two bombs went off in 2013 near the Boston Marathon finish line.

Danvers Police also announced the death of a department K-9 on Thursday.

Falco, a dog that served the town of Danvers for 11 years until his retirement in 2016, was 13 years old.
