UPDATE: Hot Springs shootout

Posted By on Fri, Nov 20, 2009 at 9:22 AM

Law enforcement sources say two suspects are in custody following the shootout Thursday night that left a Garland County sheriff's officer wounded and a suspect dead in a raid aimed at suspects in five slayings in Garland County Nov. 12.

The basics as told to me: Information was developed that led to issuance of a search warrant related to a weapon taken from one of the two nearby homes in which five people were found slain in rural Pearcy on Nov. 12.

Shooting broke out at a Hot Springs motel when officers tried to enter Thursday night. Deputy Jason Lawrence suffered wounds to the head and is in serious but stable condition today at UAMS. Another deputy suffered minor injuries. One suspect was killed. Two suspects fled. Authorities later arrested them without violent incident in traffic stops early this morning in Hot Springs.

Drugs will be involved in the unraveling of this tale, my source says, though Hot Springs authorities have been tight with details so far.

The sheriff's office has identified Marvin Stringer, 22, as the suspect killed by officers Thursday night. In custody are Samuel Conway and Jeremy Tickney, both 23. They are expected to be accused of stealing items from those slain at Pearcy along with capital murder charges.

Fox 16 has photos of the dead suspect and the two in custody.
