Hot Springs Police Dispatch notified officers that they had just taken a call for gunfire on Cypress Street. Officers responded to the area to investigate.
Corporal Langley reports that he arrived in the area and found a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle, a white Ford F-150 truck, at the intersection of Silver Street and Malvern Avenue. He followed it to Gaines Street where he attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, the vehicle fled.
The suspect vehicle fled to Belding Street, crossed Central Avenue, went up Watt Street, ran the stop sign at Linwood Street and collided head-on with a rock wall at that location. Two juveniles were in the vehicle during the pursuit. One of those juveniles was injured in the crash and transported to the hospital by LifeNet Ambulance.
The driver, Julius Dominic Nash, 18, of Mountain View Street, was arrested at the scene.
According to the report, officers were able to obtain video that showed Mr. Nash as the source of the gunfire that was reported on Cypress Street. A North American Arms .22 Magnum pistol was recovered from the driver’s side of the suspect vehicle.
Mr. Nash is charged with Felony Fleeing, Endangering The Welfare Of A Minor x2 and Discharging A Firearm Inside The City Limits with a bond amount totaling $4,500.
