WR man killed in shooting
Walnut Ridge Police Chief Richy Thatcher said the WRPD and Arkansas State Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Southeast Third Street early Sunday morning.
According to Thatcher, the Lawrence County Dispatch Center received a call between 4:20 and 4:30 regarding a shooting.
"The incident involved a male and female subject, husband and wife, who had apparently been in a domestic dispute," Thatcher said.
According to the police chief, the male subject was shot. He was alive at the time emergency officials arrived, but later died at St. Bernards.
Thatcher said no names are being released, because it is an ongoing investigation, and that no arrest had been made as of Tuesday afternoon.
