Conway police say a Plumerville man suffered an apparent gunshot wound to his right bicep, but refused to provide officers with details of the alleged shooting.
Officers were notified by Conway Regional Medical Center emergency room workers of a possible gunshot wound victim around 3:10 a.m. Thursday.
Police made contact with the victim, a 34-year-old black male, who officers said appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. Police stated the victim, who had an apparent entrance wound on his right bicep, had a strong odor of intoxicants.
Hospital staff informed officers there appeared to be a “deformed bullet still in his arm, but that they would most likely not be removing it,” the police report states. Police obtained photos of the victim’s injuries.
The victim was uncooperative with officers who attempted multiple times to gain information of the alleged shooting. Officers said they were not able to confirm the location of the incident.
The victim told police that the incident occurred at Washington Avenue and the name of the suspect was Otis or “quarter O.” Officers stated the information was “sketchy at best” and that the victim would not provide any other details.
Police went to the 2000 block of Washington Avenue to attempt to gain information, but were unable to locate anyone with knowledge of the shooting. Officers also found no evidence that a shooting had occurred in the area.
Police learned that the victim was dropped off at the hospital by an unknown black male in a black Mercedes. The victim refused to tell officers the name of the person who brought him to the hospital.
The police report states the victim was transferred to a Little Rock hospital “due to suspected nerve damage in his arm.”
