Authorities say they are seeking to arrest a 34-year-old man after a woman was shot in the face Monday in the parking lot of an Arkansas hotel.

According to a news release from the Fort Smith Police Department, officers responded shortly after 10:30 p.m. to Sparks Hospital, where they found Amy Longo, 27, with a "fairly deep" gunshot wound on the right side of her face.

She was reportedly taken to another hospital to further treatment, but her injury was not believed to be life-threatening.

Police said their investigation showed that the 27-year-old had driven earlier that day to the Knights Inn, 3810 Towson Ave., with Peter Boutin, 30.

Longo remained in the vehicle while Boutin went to a hotel room, according to the news release. When he came back, he was followed by a man authorities believe to be 34-year-old Daven Jared.

Once Boutin got in the driver's seat, one shot was reportedly fired through the driver's-side window, which hit Longo on her right cheek. Boutin then sped out of the parking lot and hit a portion of the hotel while leaving, police say.

He was later found by police in the 5000 block of South 28th Street, according to the release, and was arrested on a parole violation after being treated for minor cuts "believed to have been caused by flying glass."

Records show he remained at the Sebastian County jail in lieu of $3,500 bond as of Tuesday afternoon.

An occupant of the room that Boutin entered was also later arrested, authorities say. Megan Hovater, 26, faces a charge of obstructing governmental operations and was still being held at the jail Tuesday afternoon in lieu of $1,000 bond.

The release states that police have obtained a warrant for Jared on a first-degree battery charge. He had not been found as of Tuesday morning.
