K-9 Kina with Greenwood Cpl. Dennis Wisner

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.

    here we are mourning another death of not only an officer but possibly a K-9 Officer. I pray that they find her, give her the proper police funeral. It’s so disturbing how this country has gone down hill killing officers for no apparent reasons. Don’t put me on his jury, I’d fry his ass in a heartbeat. Stupid and senseless killings of good people and training animals for OUR PROTECTION is UNJUSTLY and DISGUSTING, I’m so sick of this. God be with all the other officers in units affected and protect those who are still serving, please give comfort to those who are grieving the loss of wonderful people who served our communities and all citizens who knew them.
