Hot Springs Police were called to Lily Ruth Court for the report of a double shooting that had just occurred before midnight on May 12, 2019.
Evidence at the scene included 2 injured adult males and a bullet riddled car parked on the street in front of a residence in the quiet, dead end street neighborhood.
Police were assisting the first LifeNet Ambulance Crew with the patients when a lady at the scene became unruly to the point that she was handcuffed and placed into the back of a police vehicle. She was covered in blood and appeared very upset, but I couldn’t tell if she was involved more so than just being an upset witness. By just watching and hearing what was going on, it looked like a disorderly conduct situation as far as police detaining her at that point.
A second LifeNet Ambulance Crew was ordered to the scene. HSPD officers assisted the second shooting victim to the stretcher. Both victims were transported from the scene by ambulances to the hospital.
At least 4 bullet holes were visible on the driver’s window.
Further details may come in a press release from HSPD today.
