The suspect in this case (Kayvon Ward) is the same suspect charged with Capital Murder in the March 10, 2020 murder of Hot Springs Police Officer Brent Scrimshire on Kenwood Street (CLICK HERE).  Mr. Ward was shot by police and arrested at the scene on Kenwood Street.  He was taken to the hospital that day.  He was soon released and booked into the Garland County Detention Center where he was served with this arrest warrant charging Battery after being developed as the suspect in connection to a battery with injury on Garden Street in July 2019.  Mr. Ward was also served with a Felony Battery arrest warrant at this same time in connection to an August 2019 shooting that took place on Garden Street (CLICK HERE)

All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

The Hot Springs Police Arrest Report says that the victim reported he was leaving a friend’s house on Garden Street.  He was unlocking the door to his vehicle when Kayvon Moshawn Daking Ward, 22, of Garden Street in Hot Springs, punched him in the head.

Kayvon Moshawn Daking Ward, 22, of Garden Street in Hot Springs – since July 2019, has allegedly punched a guy in the ear, shot a man and fatally shot a police officer.

The blow caused bleeding and swelling to his ear.

The victim does not know what prompted the attack.

Hot Springs Police Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Mr. Ward and entered it into the police computer.

Mr. Ward was shot by Hot Springs Police on Kenwood Street earlier this month when he fought officers during a traffic stop.  HSPD Officer Brent Scrimshire was killed during that attack and Mr. Ward is charged with the Capital Murder of the officer.

After clearing medical, Mr. Ward was transported to the Garland County Detention Center and processed.  Part of the processing included serving him with this Battery warrant for allegedly punching this victim in the ear.  Mr. Ward is charged with Battery with a bond of $1,000, but is being held with no bond on the capital case.
