The Conway Police Department responded to a shooting incident that occurred around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday on Grand Falls. Authorities are working to identify a suspect in this matter.

Conway police are investigating a Tuesday evening shooting on Grand Falls that left one man injured.

 

Conway Police Department spokesman LaTresha Woodruff said detectives are working toward identifying a suspect.

“Detectives are continuing to speak to the victim and witnesses to determine what happened,” she said Wednesday, noting authorities are keeping in close contact with the victim. “We are still talking to that person and trying to figure out what happened.”

According to witness statements, several rounds were fired before the suspect(s) fled.

“One witness said they heard about four shots and also heard tires squealing,” Woodruff said.

The witness reported seeing someone jump into the front passenger seat of what appeared to be a dark-colored Ford Crown Victoria near where the shots were fired.

The incident occurred around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday.

Woodruff said a family member drove the victim to Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway’s emergency room for non-life-threatening injuries he sustained during the incident. The victim was treated and released from the hospital Tuesday night.

As of press time, CPD had not named a suspect in this case.

Woodruff said authorities encourage anyone with information that could lead to the identification of suspects to call CPD’s Criminal Investigation Division at 501-450-6130. Tipsters can remain anonymous by texting information to CRIMES (274-637) using the keyword “Conway” in the message.
