Missing Arkansas K9 Found, Shot Twice
The Arkansas K9 that fled his handler after being shot on Wednesday has been found. After volunteers searched for nearly 24 hours, the agency took to the air via an airplane. Kina was located Friday morning. She had been shot twice and was immediately taken to a medical facility.
X-rays show some bullet fragments in Kina. She is dehydrated and is receiving fluids.
Kina fled following the killing of Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper and shooting of Hackett Police Chief Darrell Spells. There was blood left behind from Kina and there were fears that she was critically wounded.
The Greenwood (AR) Police department issued the following statement on their Facebook page, “Kina was shot twice. Both have entrance and exit wounds. We have reached the vet and will keep everyone up to date with info. She’s about to get X-rays. Thank you so much for all the prayers. They worked!”
A Greenwood (AR) K-9 officer was missing Wednesday 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.
Kina has been a K-9 officer for four years.
