All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
The Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol was dispatched to the 100 block of Rolling Acres Drive last night around 6PM for the call of a shooting at a residence.
The sheriff’s department has not released a statement on this event as of yet (11/17/20..3AM)
Patrol Deputies, Investigators and Command Staff arrived quickly to find, from what I understand, at least 1 victim with injury and at least 1 person that they handcuffed and transported back to the office, presumably for questioning. Other people (witnesses/bystanders/etc.) were at the scene when I arrived.
The patrol set a crime scene perimeter that seemed to make sense, even as early as other 911 units were still arriving at the scene. However, GCSO Undersheriff Lawrence, still very early on, extended the crime scene out to and up the street about another yard or so because evidence was located there which suggested that a traffic crash may have recently taken place near the location of the shooting. They seemed interested in this possible evidence.
Arkansas Constables arrived very quickly and assisted as needed; which included setting up a landing zone for the inbound EMS helicopter that was dispatched. The helicopter was later cancelled and the constables went to the scene to offer assistance.
70 West Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted with medical care and moving the patient from inside the house to the ambulance.
LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew, the EMS Supervisor and an EMS helicopter, which was later cancelled. The patient was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Undersheriff Lawrence told me at the scene that information on this event should probably be available today. I will check for an update this afternoon.
