Greenwood Police Department K-9 officer Kina has been presented with a Purple Heart Award after being involved in a shootout that killed Sebastian County Corporal Bill Cooper.

Also shot during the gunfight was Hackett Police Chief Darrell Spells.  During the incident, Kina ran off after being shot multiple times.

She was found two days later, dehydrated, with bullet wounds to her neck and back, but appears now to be making a full recovery.

She appeared to already be in much better spirits after being reunited with her handler, Greenwood officer Wisner.

The Purple Heart Award was presented by retired members of the Fort Smith Police department.
