Authorities have released the names of the police officer and two suspects wounded in a Thursday afternoon drug raid in Helena-West Helena.

According to a statement from Arkansas State Police, Helena police officer Matthew Jarrett was shot when authorities attempted to execute a residential search warrant at two addresses, 612 and 614 W. Cleburne St., at 5:18 p.m. Thursday. Police were β€œmet with gunfire” by two men β€” David and Charlie Randle β€” when they entered 614 W.
