Uncooperative, "violent" victim in Newport shooting

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT)- Newport Police are investigating a shooting after officers were called to Harris Hospital.

When police arrived at the hospital, they found a patient with a gunshot wound. Police say the victim, Robert Clark, 28, was uncooperative and refused to provide any information about the shooting on Ashley Drive.

A medic helicopter was eventually called to transport Clark to a Little Rock facility, but because of Clark's violent behavior and attempt to assault a member of the helicopter crew, he was instead taken by ambulance to a Little Rock hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Newport Police say they are still investigating the incident and Region 8 News will continue to make available those details.
