Campus gunshot

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 5:11 PM

A gunshot was fired today somewhere near the point where Ouachita Baptist and Henderson State campuses meet in Arkadelphia, but an OBU spokesman said no one was harmed and the persons responsible were taken into custody.

KATV is reporting three people were arrested. One shot was fired at a group of students heading to a dormitory, police told the station. No one was hurt.

My Twitter alert on this got a return tweet from a local news reporter who says it looks like a "domestic" incident: girl's boyfriend fired shot at ex-boyfriend.

More on the jump from Fox 16's early newscast:.

Dawn Parker of KARN Radio puts the shooting on a parking lot between the two campuses and says the three arrested were not OBU students.

 

 

BREAKING NEWS TONIGHT OUT OF ARKADELPHIA- 3 PEOPLE ARE IN CUSTODY AFTER A DRIVE BY SHOOTING.

IT HAPPENED LATE THIS AFTERNOON ON THE CAMPUSES OF OUACHITA BAPTIST AND HENDERSON STATE.

POLICE SAY THE SHOOTER WAS IN A CAR PARKED AT OBU AND FIRED AT A MAN COMING OUT OF A DORM AT HENDERSON STATE.

ALL THREE WERE STOPPED NEAR THE CLARK / HOT SPRING COUNTY LINE AND TAKEN INTO CUSTODY.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
