Woman reports vehicle shot on county road

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Deputies have increased patrols on one Craighead County road after a Jonesboro woman claimed her SUV was shot.

The 31-year-old woman told investigators the incident happened at 8 o'clock Wednesday morning on CR 745, just south of CR 760.

While traveling down the road in her 2012 KIA SUV, the woman said she heard a loud noise that sounded like a tire blowing out.

The woman immediately stopped her vehicle, got out, and checked the tires. Finding no damage, she got back into her vehicle and drove away.

Later that day the woman told deputies she found what appeared to be a bullet hole in one of the passenger side doors.

She told deputies she did not see anyone standing in the area where she initially heard what she now believes to be a gunshot.

According to the incident report, extra patrols have been ordered for the area.
