UPDATE: Deputy shoots man in Pulaski County

Posted By on Mon, Sep 26, 2016 at 9:44 AM

The Pulaski County sheriff's office says a deputy has fatally shot a man in the 22400 block of Col. Glenn Road outside Little Rock. The man was armed and not owner of the home where the deputy encountered him, according to various media reports.

KATV said the deputy responded to a 911 call about a man acting erratically and fired after the man refused to put the gun down.

Channel 4 reports that the man who was shot had been talking about being followed by a drone or helicopter.

UPDATE: The sheriff's office identified the dead man as Leeland White, 32, of Saline County. He was carrying a 20 gauge shotgun and was shot twice in the upper right torso. The deputy has not yet been identified, but a spokesman said he was a 29-year veteran of law enforcement. He's been suspended with pay while an investigation of the shooting is conducted to determine if it was justified.

The deputy responded to the call about 6:20 a.m. about a man with a rifle on the front porch of a house at 22409 Col. Glenn, about seven miles west of the city limits.
