Suspect Who Shot Two Arkansas Police Officers Taken Into Custody

Billy Jones, the suspected shooter of two police officers in the US state of Arkansas, has been taken into custody, local media reported on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Jones surrendered to police negotiators after an hours-long standoff in Sebastian County, KFSM-TV reported.

Earlier on Wednesday, Jones shot Hackett Police Chief Darrell Spells and Sebastian County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Cooper on a local highway.

Jones fled to a nearby mobile home, where he reportedly fired shots at a police robot before peacefully surrendering to police.

Cooper remains in extremely critical condition at Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith. Spells was grazed by a bullet in the head, but was treated and released from the hospital.
