Revision in account of shooting

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 3:37 PM

Authorities are now stepping back from their initial account that fugitive Todd Bostian. shot two hostages and then was killed by sniper fire. From Today's TVH:

Police are now retracting their statement that Todd Bostian shot and killed the pregnant 18-year-old early this morning before a sniper killed him Friday morning after three in Garland County. 

Police now say that they are waiting for the ballistic tests from the State Crime Lab. However, they do say that Bostian initiated the shooting and police fired back.

Also, Arkansas Game and Fish are on the scene of the deadly standoff. We're told they are searching the banks of the lake for evidence. One gun has been recovered. Also, a bullet proof vest allegedly belonging to Bostian has been found.
