Gregory Aaron Kinsey

Two men are dead and one in custody after a machete attack Wednesday night in Fort Smith, the Fort Smith Police Department said in a statement. Gregory Aaron Kinsey, 20, was arrested in connection with two counts of capital murder.

Police received a call at 9:48 p.m. about a stabbing in the 1600 block of North D Street. Responding officers found the body of Nathan Young, 32, and Brandon Prince, 39, both with extensive cuts on their upper bodies.

A witness said he was on the front porch of the duplex talking with the two men when they saw a man walking down the alley acting strangely, Fort Smith police said. Prince and Young confronted the man in the middle of the street, and then the man took a machete from behind his back and attacked both men, the witness told police.

The attacker fled after the witness threw a piece of wood at him, police said. Another witness knew the man's mother, police said, and Kinsey was arrested at his mother's residence at 524 1/2 S. 17th St.

And you "goth" people wonder why we all think you are unbalanced?? Take a look at this winner. He apparently goes along with the goth line of thinking judging by his looks. People who look like this are why there are stereotypes about how they will act!!!

For you gun control liberals: A well placed shot with a FIREARM would have prevented this.

Yeah, gunshots. Because violence is always the answer...perhaps they could have left the "strange acting" man alone and called the police.

Hey Rainbow... what makes you think that by "not confronting" a strange acting person would have prevent these two deaths??? they may have prevented more people getting hacked up.

It seems to me "the witness" and his buddies young & prince were the confronters/attackers and maybe Kinsey was defending himself ? If Im walking down a public street and 2 guys leave a porch to confront me, they might run into a similar fate!

Hey rainbow - You can cower if you please and play avoidance. Libs and cowards typically prefer being a victim anyway. Me, I prefer to take care of myself and not be a victim. Violence isn't always the answer, but when it is, I prefer not to run and hide, as is your recommended course of action.
