Sgt. Ryan Stark, Kye’s partner on the force, wiped away tears as he bid the dog farewell before he was buried in a flag-draped casket and given a 21-gun salute.

Department spokesman Capt. Dexter Nelson told Today.com:
"Kye was injured while Stark was responding to a stolen car report last Sunday, August 24. A 22-year-old suspect had led police officers on a car chase until he crashed his vehicle in a ditch and then tried to flee by foot. Kye chased after the suspect and Stark, when he caught up to both of them, saw the suspect stabbing the dog repeatedly with a knife."
