KARK reports here
on a police chase that began with a domestic abuse report in Jacksonville and ended in Grant County with a fatal shooting of a suspect.

Events began with a Jacksonville woman's report that her boyfriend had assaulted her and stolen her car. North Little Rock police later spotted the car and began a chase. It lasted for something in the neighborhood of 40 miles, ending on Keg Mill Road in Grant County. That road crosses U.S. Highway 270 about midway between Sheridan and Pine Bluff.

State Police are investigating. The suspect was fatally shot after he came at an officer with a knife, KARK said. The  car had stopped and an officer broke a window of the car. A police K-9 dog was stabbedseveral times  in the face by the suspect when it jumped into the car. The man then got out of the car with the knife and was shot. He died en route to a hospital.
