Two Arkansas police officers were shot Wednesday morning as police descended upon a house in which the shooting suspect had taken refuge.
The officers were taken to a hospital in Fort Smith. A deputy who was shot was reported in critical condition and was taken into surgery. Hackett Chief of Police Darrell Spells was also taken to the hospital but has since been released.
TV stations KHBS/KHOG reported the suspect was identified by the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Department as Billy Jones of Greenwood, who the station said was described as “having negative feelings” toward police. A large number of weapons were inside the house where the suspect had taken refuge, witnesses said.
