Greenwood K-9 Officer Missing Following Officer Shooting
GREENWOOD (KFSM) — A Greenwood K-9 officer was missing Wednesday (Aug. 10) following a standoff with a suspect accused of shooting a Sebastian County deputy and the Hackett police chief, according to the Greenwood Police Department.
Greenwood Police Chief Will Dawson said K-9 Kina was shot this morning when officers responded to the shooting at a home on Highway 253.
Kina and her handler, Corporal Dennis Wisner, pulled up to the scene as Billy Jones was firing. Dawson said he believes Kina was shot inside Wisner’s vehicle, and then she ran away when he popped the trunk.
He said officers found blood in Kina’s kennel, where she was last sitting.
Officers suspended the search on Wednesday evening and will continue Thursday around 6 a.m.
Kina has been a K-9 officer for four years.
