All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
Halloween Night, around 6:22, Hot Springs Police responded to a call of gunfire at a gas station located at the Grand Avenue/Central Avenue Intersection.
As police were en route to that location, an eastbound, gold Jaguar sedan jumped the curb at Hardee’s on Grand Avenue, just 1 block east of that location. The Jaguar struck a small tree and slammed into a large SUV that was parked in the Hardee’s Parking Lot. The driver of the Jaguar jumped out and fled the scene on foot. The airbags in the Jaguar deployed as a result of this crash.
A Ruger .380 caliber pistol was found by detectives in the front driver’s seat area of the Jaguar and the report states that a strong odor of marijuana allegedly filled the crashed Jaguar sedan.
No injuries were reported in connection to these 2 events that I am aware of.
It is unknown whether the 2 events are related.
