Robbery suspect shot by Warren police

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 11:28 AM

The State Police provides details on its investigation of the shooting by Warren police last night of a robbery suspect, now hospitalized in Pine Bluff.

The report:

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division have been assigned to investigate a shooting incident that occurred last night (Thursday, September 13, 2012) involving officers of the Warren Police Department.

At approximately 7:30 PM Sergeant Robbie Ashcraft and Patrolman Aaron Hines approached a local business property identified as, Abraham’s Shop, where Davdrin Goffin, 29, of Warren was believed to be located.

Goffin was wanted by police in connection with an August 29th warrant for aggravated robbery. Goffin had also been identified as a suspect in the theft of two guns earlier Thursday afternoon.

The Warren officers witnessed Goffin outside the shop and approached the suspect. While attempting to handcuff Goffin, the suspect broke-free and was shot by one of the officers.

Goffin was transported to a local hospital before being moved to a Pine Bluff hospital later the same evening.

An investigation of the shooting incident is continuing today and will be submitted for review to the office of the Tenth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney.

Questions relating to the administrative status of the officers should be directed to the Warren Police Department.
