NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - Police say a homicide suspect spotted by a North Little Rock patrol officer has been fatally shot after he fled and was pursued by police.
Police spokesman Sgt. Terry Kuykendall (KIR-ken-doll) said Monday the confrontation occurred about 7:30 a.m. According to Kuykendall, the nearby Pike View Elementary School was locked down during the pursuit of the suspect.
Kuykendall said an officer responding to a call of a disturbance at a home spotted the suspect and a foot pursuit ensued. He declined to say what led to the shooting in a nearby wooded area.
Kuykendall didn't identify the man who was shot by police or the officer who fired the fatal shot.
