Harrisburg shooting investigation underway

HARRISBURG, Ark. (KAIT) -A judge found probable cause Friday morning to charge a man with attempted capital murder after police say he shot another man multiple times.

Poinsett County District Court Judge Ron Hunter also found probable cause existed to charge 21-year-old Archie Dakota Smith of Harrisburg with aggravated residential burglary, endangering the welfare of a minor in the first degree, and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

Smith is being held on a $250,000 cash-only bond at the Poinsett County Detention Center awaiting arraignment on April 27.

The shooting occurred just after midnight Friday, March 5, in the 600-block of Maplewood Cove in Harrisburg.

According to Detective Chris Crews with the Harrisburg Police Department, a woman called 911 around 12:09 a.m. to report a shooting.

When police arrived, they found Ryan Long suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. An ambulance transported him to an undisclosed hospital in critical condition.

Crews told Region 8 News Saturday that Long is up and alert and is talking.

The woman reportedly identified the suspected shooter as Dakota Smith.

Crews said officers found Smith, along with a gun, at a Harrisburg home around 1:50 a.m. and arrested him.

Crews thanked the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office for assisting in the investigation.
