40/29 reports that a scooter driver was fatally shot Tuesday night by Springdale police after he pulled a pistol and fired at officers after  a traffic stop.

Around 10:36 pm, two officers with the Springdale Police Department made a traffic stop when a man was driving a scooter near the intersection of Turner and Gates.

After stopping, the man on the scooter produced a pistol and fired at the officers.

The officers returned fire hitting the man.

The police say they have a video, not yet released, that shows the 26-year-old man firing at officers first.
