The Greenwood Police Department says a police dog that ran away after being wounded during a shooting that killed a Sebastian County deputy and wounded the Hackett police chief has been found.

Greenwood police spokeswoman Kristin Faulkenberry told reporters the dog Kina "was up and walking" when searchers found her Friday morning near where the shooting took place near Hackett.

Police said the dog had two gunshot wounds and was taken to a veterinarian, but appeared to be recovering.

The dog was shot and ran into a wooded area Wednesday when a man identified as Billy Monroe Jones opened fire on officers, killing Deputy Bill Cooper and wounding Police Chief Darrell Spells.

Jones eventually surrendered and is now in custody.
