One jailed following Friday shooting

Posted: December 17, 2012 - 2:06pm

Officials with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office say the man suspected of shooting a man and woman early Friday was charged with second-degree battery and released on $2,500 bond.

Andrew Judd Elrod, 58, of Conway, was taken into custody following the shooting death of Charles Hooten, 39, of Conway, outside of Elrod's home on Buddy Lane around 1:30 a.m.

Elrod was charged in connection with the shooting of Debbie Ford, 47, who was also at the residence and suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Ford was transported to UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock, where she is in stable condition.

Authorities have declined comment on the circumstances surrounding the incident and on the type or caliber of weapon used in the shooting.

No charges have been filed in Hooten's death. FCSO Capt. Matt Rice said Monday the shooting death is still under investigation.

Why?

Why is everything hush-hush all of a sudden? That is clearly not the usual path taken by the FCSO or the PA.

Ever Hear

Of self defense both people were on his property if I tell you to leave my property even if I invited you in the first place. You must leave if I feel threatened then I can protect myself.
I have NO idea what happened here and at this point I guess neither do the cops. If one person is dead and the other in the hospital unable to tell their side of the story. My guess is they only have Elrods story and are giving him the benefit of the doubt.

disbelief

It's absolutely amazing how this man was even given the chance for bond....he needs to still be locked up. There is no excuse for taking someone's life. There is a lot to this story that I will not disclose until the investigation of my Uncle is finished. I can and will say this, he was not of any threat to this man. In fact, they were friends.:( We laid Jr to rest yesterday and that was the hardest thing I have ever had to do...say goodbye to such a great man. His fiance is recovering, but has such a long road ahead of her. I do pray that justice will be served.

I didnt do it
