KARK reporter Mitchell McCoy confirmed that officers found one person dead and that a suspect was taken into custody. The BNO report says that the person of interest was picked up in Little Rock, a bit south of the hospital. It is unclear if that person was the suspected shooter or believed to be an accomplice.
Just talked to a man whose dad is currently in surgery on the second floor. He was sent to the bathroom after they announced “active shooter” over the intercom then was brought out of the hospital. As far as he knows, his dad is still in surgery. @KARK4News @FOX16News https://t.co/JO0L2rKtbm
