Police in shooting in Helena

Posted By on Tue, Sep 1, 2015 at 6:13 PM

From the Arkansas State Police:

Authorities within the Helena, Arkansas Police Department have requested the Arkansas State Police to investigate a shooting incident involving one of their officers today.

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division were dispatched to the area of Holly and McDonough Streets shortly after 2 PM.

Initial reports provided to State Police agents indicate a local police officer was dispatched to a call involving an armed disturbance and reports of an exchange of gunfire between at least two individuals.

Upon arrival in the area the responding officer became engaged in the gunfire which left one individual wounded and transported to a Memphis hospital. The officer was not injured.

The State Police investigative report will be submitted to the Phillips County Prosecuting Attorney for consideration as to whether the use of deadly force by the local officer was consistent with Arkansas laws.

  • 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.
